Should We Watch Theatre Bootlegs?


Have you ever been watching a show, when out of the corner of your eye you notice someone’s phone screen? If you have, you’ll know just how annoying it can be. Most of the time these people will be stopped by an usher, or another audience member, but sometimes they go unnoticed. In fact, sometimes people will film an entire show just so that they can share it online. This is strictly against the law. But could this criminal act actually be helping the industry? Let’s talk about the tricky subject of bootlegs. 

The term ‘bootleg’ is commonly referred to within the musical theatre community for recordings such as these. They are often extremely low quality, with the offender occasionally covering up the camera to avoid detection, but this hasn’t stopped them from achieving thousands of views on YouTube. With a quick search it’s possible to watch an entire library of shows, ranging from Wicked to Dear Evan Hansen, with many more being disguised as ‘slime tutorials’. These can be taken down from the site as part of a copyright strike, but they can easily be uploaded by others within hours of being removed.


A variety of issues arise from bootlegging. Whether that’s stopping other audience members’ immersion, being a nuisance for the front of house team, or distracting the actors on stage. Doing so will also put you in danger of prosecution, since actors, costumes, and songs, will all be legally protected. If anything distinctive happens during the performance, it’s easy to guess when you attended and in which seat you were sitting at the time. If tracked down by the authorities, you could face some very serious consequences. Especially since HD bootlegs are often put up for sale on sites like Tumblr and Reddit. 

Another major argument is that if shows are readily available online, why on earth would people bother paying to see them in person? However, this can easily be debunked. Music piracy has been an issue for years, but concerts across the world still sell out in minutes. Pubs broadcast sports for free, but people still buy season tickets. When people love something, they will always want to see it live if the opportunity arises. So why can’t the same be said about theatre? 

The existence of bootlegs isn’t always caused by people not wanting to buy tickets, but rather because many shows are simply not accessible. The most popular subjects for recordings often come from the West End or Broadway, where even the cheapest tickets can be shockingly expensive. In London the average ticket price is around £50, and in New York that can more than double. If you don’t live in these areas you’ll have to fork out for travel and accommodation too, or you can hope that at some point a tour will come to your area. Heavily discounted tickets are often available for students or via a lottery system, but they can be very hard to get hold of. 


The popularity of recordings therefore demonstrates a desire for a more equal environment. Shows like Les Miserables highlight the lives of the struggling working class, but it’s unlikely to be viewed by anyone remotely from that background. Pricy tickets and limited cheap seats mean that most musicals are only seen by the richest people. Most of these prices are justified however, due to how expensive it is to run a show in the first place. Once staff, electric bills, props, costumes, and repairs are accounted for, many theatres need thousands of pounds a week just to keep going. 

Surprisingly, illegal distribution has also given some shows a second chance. Heathers: The Musical began its original production in 2014, but ran for just six months. Shortly afterwards a bootleg was released to YouTube, where it immediately exploded. So much so, it was then able to open in the West End in 2018, where it was insanely successful. A large percentage of ticket owners consisted of the teenagers who had made it so popular in the first place, and a UK tour is currently being planned. This same phenomenon also catapulted Be More Chill from New Jersey all the way to Broadway. 


But things are slowly changing, and in the future there may be no need for bootlegs at all. Professionally shot shows have been shown on TV and in cinemas from time to time, but now we are seeing a rise in official online streaming. The Shows Must Go On! launched a series of online musicals during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, and gained millions of views. Disney+ will soon be streaming Hamilton too. In the past pro-shots of Legally Blonde: The Musical and Miss Saigon have severely reduced the number of bootlegs for those specific shows, so this could well be the way forward. 

So, should we watch bootlegs? There isn’t really a straight answer. Creatives get no say in their work being released for free, but it can encourage larger audiences. It opens up musicals for everyone, but it ruins the experience for those who did pay for tickets. What can be learnt from the situation however, is that people want more ways to watch live theatre. And perhaps we are working towards a time where both live and official recordings will be the norm.

  • *the conversation musical producers think we're having*
  • Someone: Hey, do you want to go see this musical with me?
  • Me: Nah man. I've already seen the bootleg.
  • *the conversation we're actually having*
  • Someone: Hey, what's wrong?
  • Me: I've just watched the bootleg of this musical I used to not care about, but now I'm going to have to sell my first born to buy tickets to it.

My new aesthetic is the names people on Youtube give to bootlegs so they won’t be taken down 


my favorite new trend is people posting bootlegs on youtube with inconspicuous titles


Repeat after me:Professional recordings of musicals are the key to the revival of musical theatre within popular culture


Concept: a website like Netflix but for professionally filmed broadway/west end musicals

(Stay with me. It’s not what you think.)

A couple of months ago, good friend JC told me that there are entire (bootleg) recordings of Broadway shows on YouTube. Many of their titles include the phrase “slime tutorial” so they can hide in plain sight. Okay, yes. If I know about it, the secret is certainly out, but they’re still there!

Important note: I absolutely support artists and their intellectual property. I’ve actually spent much of my career defending those rights. But 2020 is a total jerk, and I need to get my Broadway on, even if it is a bootleg recording.I promise I will go right back to supporting the arts as soon as there are some arts to support.

The videos do still get taken down, but not nearly as often as one would expect, perhaps because the owners of the intellectual property are anxious for us to continue to crave and remember their work. In 7 years of daily blogging, this is the first post where I plan to take down my links (as soon as Broadway opens back up, whenever that is).

In the meantime, the shows must go on! So if there’s a show you want to see and either I didn’t post it or the video below has been removed, just go to YouTube and search for the title plus “slime tutorial.” I’ll bet you find it!

The first full-length show below is the reason I ended up here to begin with. The show Six, about Henry VIII’s wives, was supposed to open on Broadway on the very day when New York closed its Broadway theaters. Heartbreaking. I keep thinking about how sad it is that these remarkable performances were never seen on Broadway. So here’s a bootleg of their successful run on London’s West End.

The Russian Princess Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanov Slime Tutorial

Back at it with another youtube au but this time it's Kenma!

The video opens without an intro, true to the usual style of this channel, and reveals three men in a rather nice kitchen, standing at the island. The one on the right is tall with spiky black hair and a shit eating grin, on the left is an even taller blond with glasses who looks apathetic, and in the middle is the shortest with two-toned hair, looking even more apathetic if that was possible. 

The one resembling pudding, the owner of the channel, spoke first; his voice was monotone but rather than being boring it was rather soothing. "Hey guys, it's Kodzuken here and this week we're going to be making slime. Actual slime, I don't have the money to go to a musical-"

"You're the most subscribed YouTuber in Japan," the blond butted in. "Plus you own a company, Tetsurou is co-president of that company, and I'm a professional athlete. No one buys that for a second."

"...I'm too lazy to get us all tickets to see a show in the States," the first relented, "at least for now. This has been requested a lot, and so has more videos with Kuro and Kei, so here's what happens when you try to get two easily distracted autistics and someone with ADHD to make slime without supervision."

"Place your bets now for who's gonna eat something inedible first, and what's it gonna be!" The third piped up, earning a glare from his boyfriends. "You can't even be mad, it happens every time!" The two were still glaring, and the video cut out just as Tetsurou looked ready to fear for his life.

It cut back in to the three with a bunch of materials in front of them. "If you want to know how to make slime, click another video we don't even know what we're doing." Kenma said, earning a snort from Tetsurou.

"This is about to go to shit," Kei muttered.

"We have a bunch of stuff here, including glue, whatever the fuck borax is, shaving cream, dye, and uh..." Tetsurou trailed off, physically grasping his hands as if he could snatch the words from the air. "This is, um, what's this called again?" His boyfriends just gave him a look that they didn't know either, the camera zooming in on the ravenette's squinty-confused face, Kenma's scrunchy-thinking face, and Kei's lip-bitey I-want-to-laugh-but-I-don't-know-the-answer-either face.

The video turned to a clip, obviously taken much later considering the sticky slime all over the three's hands and the table, to Tetsurou shouting "PALLETS!" Then turning back to where it left off.

"Let's start then, I guess," Kenma huffed slightly out of frustration, "this is gonna be a hot fucking mess."

The next few minutes were sped up, showing how they haphazardly threw ingredients in a bowl, voices squeaky due to the speed but intelligible sometimes. A few parts were slowed down back to normal speed (and sometimes replayed slower, for dramatic effect), such as when Kei's glasses fell into his mint green, still very sticky slime ("at least you used contact solution as activator?" "Shut the fuck up you fucking hyena") or when Kenma's tics got the better of him and he slammed his hand into a mountain of unmixed glue and shaving cream with a loud "SQUISH!" (after which he let out a deep sigh, stared right into the camera which had zoomed in on his face, and said "I squished it" with a voice so disappointed his boyfriends couldn't help but laugh), or when the cat jumped onto the table and nearly stuck her paws into Tetsurou's bowl of blood red slime before he caught her. Even with the higher speed you could see them steadily become covered in slime, hair dipping into it, and various mixtures falling onto the table and floor.

As for the earlier bet, Kuroo was, in fact, the first one to eat something (highly surprising, considering while they weren't big eaters both of his boyfriends had forms of pica), albeit on accident. He went to chew his nails at some point, only to realize belatedly that his hands were coated in glue and he ingested it in surprise. It didn't take long, though, for him to catch Kenma pouring a drop of food coloring into his mouth, or Kei licking shaving cream off his fingers ("people ask why we buy the more expensive, non-toxic shit when we don't have kids. This. This is why").

After 5 minutes of the sped up slime making, they resumed in normal speed to do an outro.

"Jesus fuck that was messy," the ravenette chuckled, still holding the cat away from his normal ("boring") slime, boyfriends entranced and consistently playing with their own (mint green with pallets for Kei, and pale pink fluffy slime for Kenma) still.

"I told you, when you wanted to do this, that it'd be messy. And what did you say Kuro?"

"...that it wouldn't be that bad."

"It's like you forgot who we are, Tetsurou," Kei smirked.

"Ah right, I forgot I need to check and make sure none of my boyfriends are eating shaving cream."

"You ate glue first!"

"On accident!"

"ALRIGHT that's all for today," Kenma butts in, mouth bright red from the earlier ingestion of food coloring, "thanks for watching this shitshow, I'll see you Thursday for my normal stream."

"Bye Kenma's subscribers!" Kuroo shouted, waving, as Kei waved slightly.

There was three seconds of black screen, before it went back to the clip immediately after Kenma had tried the red dye, now at normal speed so his words could be understood. "Huh, tastes like eggs."

"What the fuck babe."

There was another cut, and it showed the three looking at their kitchen sink in disbelief, the stainless steel streaked with various colors and spots of glue, shaving cream, contact solution, borax, and other chemicals.

"Fuckkkkkkkkkkkkk" was the last word of the video, courtesy of Kodzuken himself.

[A/N: I'm hesitant to say I have pica just because I'm not sure if what I do actually fits the definition or not, but I do impulsively chew on/eat things. Especially that cardboard shit that like clothes tags are made of, thin plastic, vinegar, shit like that. Food dye does, in fact, taste vaguely of eggs, even when you've never used it for eggs. I know, I've tried it.]


Now discussing:
