While the theatres might be dark currently, some companies are streaming their productions to make sure we all get our dose of culture in these difficult times. Why not enjoy a ‘trip’ to the theatre over Easter using one of the links below? (On the plus side, you can eat your popcorn as noisily as you like!) Please just be aware that some shows may have an age restriction/ guidance.
‘Wind in the Willows’ the musical – this is a full-of-fun show suitable for everyone: https://www.willowsmusical.com/
The National Theatre are streaming one of their shows every Thursday on YouTube for the next few weeks. While you can be sure the quality of the productions will be excellent, please just be aware that at the least the first production, ‘One Man Two Guvnors’, is more suitable for an older audience, but there is also ‘Jane Eyre’ coming up, ‘Treasure Island’ and (the one I’m really look forward to) ‘Twelfth Night’. You’ll need to log on to You Tube, but see the article below for some more info: https://www.whatsonstage.com/london-theatre/news/national-theatre-live-youtube-free-stream_51268.html
Next up is the BBC- they will be streaming a number of productions from famous West End theatres and directors on iplayer. There’s a good mix of shows to watch: again, you’ll have to have a peek on iplayer, but the article below gives you an idea of what’s to come: https://www.londontheatre.co.uk/theatre-news/news/bbc-to-screen-new-theatre-recordings-as-part-of-culture-in-quarantine
So, make the most of these opportunities to see fine theatre from the comfort of your living room, or lap top, or phone over Easter. You don’t even need to buy a ticket….
