Here are the 3 BroadwayHD shows that I’m starting with:

Oklahoma!

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.

Macbeth

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.

Stars in Concert: Sutton Foster

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.

Sarah’s first box was Honest Company and she was excited to learn that there are boxes to cover many of her interests which include coffee, sci-fi, books, pop culture, comics, and makeup. She’s currently loving Stars Hollow Monthly and Vegan Cuts, and can’t wait to find more!

  1. Thanks so much for posting this. I had no idea this was out there. We have season tickets to the theatre and symphony and all those shows are on hold or canceled. I scrolled through the catalog and there is some great musicals and plays. So excited to start watching these. That’s why MSA is the best!

  2. Is Hamilton or Anastasia on here?

  3. I recommend “Bright Colors And Bold Patterns” on here! Also The Metropolitan Opera is doing a free streaming of one opera a day.

  4. Great info from you both! Thank you.

    I truly enjoy theater productions. From high school troupes, Chicago theater district, Stratford, Canada, The Purple Rose and other neighborhood theater groups, I have managed to feed my enjoyment.

    These suggestions from you both, will be a wonderful solution while staying inside our home. Thanks again.

  5. As someone in the industry, I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to try this service, and now seems to be it!

    Where I’m from (not Broadway) we’re looking at being out of work till mid-May at the earliest, so this is a welcome distraction and a great way to keep theater alive even when Broadway’s lights are dark!

    Nothing replaces the magic of in-person theater, but this will be a welcome substitute!

    For those interested, PBS Passports and other theaters like Pittsburgh Public Theater, National Theater in London, and others are releasing either live streamed readings or opportunities to watch recorded performances!
