Stream Theatre Now!

We curated information about the event below (July 11) announced in The New York Times. And added more virtual theatre happening now, highlighted weekly in Carol Tambor’s spot-on newsletter. All for your home entertainment. RSVP to the Broadway happening here.

Join the stage’s biggest stars as they virtually gather to perform the songs, scenes and showstoppers that helped define a year like no other.

Watch Patti LuPone and the cast of “Company” perform the show’s opening number. See Mary-Louise Parker’s monologue from “The Sound Inside.” Hear from playwright Jeremy O. Harris, the creator of “Slave Play.” Sing along with Elizabeth Stanley of “Jagged Little Pill.”

Check in with Times writers and editors as they share some of their favorite moments of the year — and the moments they look forward to when the curtain rises again.

It’s the first event in our new series Offstage, exploring how theater artists are fostering their creative spirit and developing their work during this pause in performances.

And excerpts from Carol Tambor’s spot-on newsletter:

From the off-Broadway jewel, The Irish Rep, comes a digital program for summer beginning with The Gifts You Gave to the Dark, with the incomparable Marie Mullen.  This is a world premiere, written specifically in response to the virus crisis, by Darren Murphy.

Mark your calendars– June 20th, 8pm, (EST), for Miscast20 from MCC theatre company.  It will be the first time their gala is streamed– Broadway stars will sing songs from roles for which they would never have, could never, have been cast!  It should be joyous. Remember, this is ordinarily a fundraising event– and now, more than ever, they need your donation.

And, one of Shakespeare’s silliest comedies“The Merry Wives of Windsor” is now on the Globe YouTube station. This updated version was not so well reviewed due to a complete “lack of gravitas”– however, it may be just what you need!

Lastly, a reminder, not to miss Tom Hiddleston in “Coriolanus” beginning Thursday, June 4th— for one week, from National Theatre Live.  Josie Rourke’s direction was particularly fine on the small Donmar stage, according to this four star Guardian review.

“These NTL productions and broadcasts are so fine– we feel as if we have great (theatre) seats. When they announce future shows, I’ll be filling you in!”
