Formerly Metro Screen and then Cobbstar Studios, this Sydney TV studio has been transformed into The Reservoir Room.
With it being a little hard (impossible) to get out to a show, The Reservoir Room is bringing the show to you, streaming some of Australia's most loved entertainers from theatre, live music, cabaret and drag every Friday and Saturday night.
The concept kicked off on 5 June.
“At The Reservoir Room we are championing talent. We are leading with acts that have lost their work due to COVID-19," Entertainer, Executive Producer and host Catherine Alcorn says.
"We live by the mandate that no one is working for free, and audiences will view for a fee. This is our industry’s new normal and we need to ensure our industry can survive these times with light at the end of the tunnel that isn’t an oncoming train."
"As we still can’t get to shows, we’ve devised a plan where we bring the show to you," host and three-time Gold Logie nominee Rodger Corser says. "The Reservoir Room is a throwback to live and dangerous TV, crossed with the personal and intimate feel you get from being in the audience of a great live show."
