Guess what? You’re probably going to be stuck at home for a while. And that’s OK because it is the right thing to do for your health and the health of your neighbors.
And let’s not forget: There are plenty of things to entertain you while inside your house, like virtual museum visits, operas, and, now, streams of all your favorite Broadway shows.
BroadwayHD, a streaming service for theater fans started in 2015, has long been bringing Broadway performances to people’s living rooms.
On the platform, subscribers will find a combination of acquired performances including performances of “Cats,” “The King and I,” and “The Sound of Music,” along with originals the platform filmed including performances of “Kinky Boots” and “42nd Street,” from Broadway, The West End, and other elite venues around the world.
The company announced this month that in addition to its preexisting library of nearly 300 productions, BroadwayHD would be curating two new playlists for anyone hoping to binge-watch some seriously stellar performances.
To honor Women’s History Month, BroadwayHD curated a playlist featuring the works of female theater-makers and show-stopping performances including an all-female Shakespeare Trilogy, along with “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill,” “A Night with Janis Joplin,” “Ann,” “Driving Ms. Daisy,” and more.
Additionally, BroadwayHD is celebrating the theater legend Stephen Sondheim for his 90th birthday and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 72nd with a special tribute playlist including some of their most beloved productions.
The playlist contains “Gypsy,” “Putting It Together,” “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” “Cats,” “Phantom Of The Opera,” “Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat,” and more.
The platform is offering a free seven-day trial, along with an $8.99 monthly plan.
