This platform may enable artists to move their work to the next level, whether it’s a theatrical production, a film or television show.
A Set Ablaze reading involves actors and directors with profile and is broadcast – “streamed live” – over the Internet so industry audiences can view the event from remote locations.
Audiences need only click on a hyperlink to view the reading on laptops from offices and homes. LoNyLa units in London, New York and Los Angeles participate in post-reading feedback via Skype.

LoNyLa artists can initiate a Set Ablaze reading by bringing polished material to the core hubs, or the hubs will select, rehearse and broadcast material that is ready for transatlantic exposure to the industry.
