Here are the 3 BroadwayHD shows that I’m starting with:
I haven’t had a strong desire to see Oklahoma! in years but the reviews of the 2019 revival put in on my radar. I really want to see the revival version when it tours next year but in the meantime, I’m happy to check out this 1999 version starring Hugh Jackman. When a friend had an extra ticket to his concert tour last year, I went without knowing what to expect. He was so energetic and charismatic during his show that I can’t wait to see what he brings to Curly McLain.
If you’re interested in going down a Shakespeare wormhole, BroadwayHD has a lot to choose from – including four versions of Macbeth! I went with the 1979 version starring Sir Ian McKellan and Judi Dench because I like that it was shot on a nearly bare set. It feels a little spooky and really showcases the actors. You can also check out the 2010 version starring Ian’s bestie Sir Patrick Stewart if you want to have a Macbeth marathon.
Sutton Foster is such a treasure! If you only know her from Younger or the unfortunately short-lived Bunheads – this hour-long special showcases her beautiful voice through pop songs and showtunes. Sutton sings with special guests Megan McGinnis, Darcie Roberts and Jonathan Groff joins her for an adorable tap duet.
