Movie theaters aren't just for movies anymore. Aside from the weekly releases slipping into theaters, we've seen concert footage, and even sporting events get their shot at big-screen love. But theater has remained elusive.

Though we've had movie cameras for many years now, the theatrical world is a treat for the lucky few who happen to be in the right city at the right time. A handful of performances are staged, and then gone forever, save the hazy memories of theater-goers and a smattering of reviews. Sure, some find their way into a camera, like Kevin Kline's Hamlet or Helen Mirren in A Midsummer Night's Dream. But for every production that gets recorded, many do not. You can place Richard Burton's cinematic version of Equus onto your Netflix queue, but Daniel Radcliffe's stage stint remains an experience for lucky theatergoers in 2007 and 2008.

But that might be changing.
