While the curtain has temporarily been drawn to a close on Broadway, that doesn't mean that you have to miss out on your favorite shows. BroadwayHD just launched a free trial for their streaming service, allowing theater fans a chance to catch their favorite performances from the comfort of home.
BroadwayHD started as a streaming service in 2015, featuring much-loved performances for theater's biggest fans. The service now offers over 300 shows, with curated lists of performances for musicals, Broadway classics, foreign theater, documentaries, and more. There's also a family-friendly section with over a dozen classic shows that are great for any family movie night—including Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Sound of Music, and Peter Pan.
Their website states, “From the finest productions of Shakespeare to Tony Award-winning blockbusters, we have something for all the theater fans in your life!” And with options ranging from Shakespeare's Macbeth—of which there are over 50 in the Shakespeare category alone—featuring Patrick Stewart to Kinky Boots and Les Misérables to Riverdance, there really is a show for everyone.
In addition to the hundreds of performances available, the company also announced that they will be curating two playlists of binge-worthy shows—one of which to honor Women's History Month.
The service is compatible with any device and is offered on Roku, Amazon Firestick, iOS, AppleTV, and Android. After the end of the week-long free trial, subscribers are offered to continue service for $8.99 per month or an annual plan for $99.99. Users also have the option to gift subscription to the theater-lovers in their lives.
Live Broadway performances may currently be on hold, but the show can—and will—go on.
