Theatre in the Time of Corona, 6/9 Edition

The following is the latest installment of Carol Tambor’s spot-on newsletter about dramatic happenings available for streaming. Below is up-to-the-minute news about what’s available.  To subscribe to Tambor’s newsletter directly, email

Of note: You may want to join PBS Passport to be able to watch a bouquet of plays under the banner of the Broadway on PBS Collection. Included are many high-qualithy productions, such as the brilliantly reviewed “Indecent” by Paula Vogel. We saw the play with our family in Seattle. Well worth the (very low) price of entry to the Collection.



The theatre community is truly an inclusive one, making theatre for everyone. Here’s an example– Flute Theatre adapts Shakespeare for autistic audiences and their families, worldwide. From June 22nd to July 18th, they will be performing “Pericles,” designed as a series of fairground games and rides offering different sensory experiences.

Kieran Hurley’s multi-award-winning “Heads Up” is online until June 22nd– it’s already been very well reviewed. Kieran also wrote “Mouthpiece” (Best of Edinburgh Award Winner, 2019) – so I’m obviously a huge fan!

Finborough Theatre will be putting another of its fine shows online each month.  The latest is “Jane Clegg” by St. John Ervine, written in 1913 during the campaign for the women’s vote. This is an archived full production from its well reviewed 2019 run.  When first seen, it was compared, quite favorably, with Ibsen’s  “A Doll’s House.”

I’ll send you notice of Finborough’s July presentation soon.

Please make time for  “Livin’ La Vida Imelda” from Ma-Yi Theatre. It will run from June 17th-30th. This New York Times’ review highlights Carlos Celdran’s charming performance, raising the Philippines’ reputation above that of Imelda Marcos’.
