Broadway 4D – A Legacy Project
(08/Jun/16) - So, what news of Goddard’s ‘big push’ as he calls it? This is Broadway 4D, an immersive attraction merging 3D and 4D technologies with filmed live performances. It tells the story of the Broadway musical. The project, which stalled last year owing to financial problems, is close to Goddard’s heart. He has produced several successful shows, both on and off Broadway, including the Tony Award-winning revival of Hair in 2009.
"I feel that the hardest journey ever has been on Broadway 4D because nobody has understood it," he says. "The person responsible for financing hit a hiccup right after we started. We had to shut down right after we had successfully filmed Christina Aguilera’s stellar performance as Evita. That was a monumental upset for me. To see the project frozen due to the producer’s inability to deliver as promised.”
The main reason cited in the Press was the renovation of the project’s venue, the vintage Times Square Theatre. This is reputed to have cost in the region of $30 million. According to Goddard, the project is now back on track and he expects to be shooting in 2016.
"We will finally bring it to life. I think that it will be a legacy project for me that will go on way beyond me and my lifetime. It brings together the things I love, Broadway musical and 3D/4D attractions. A lot of people don’t realise we had all the sets built. And as I said above – we filmed Christina Aguilera as Evita – that is on 3D and ready to go."
