5 Shows To Stream This Week

Last week was a great week when it came to theatre - not only did we get a fantastic new production of Songs For A New World, we also got a last minute show at the Palladium!

This week is decidedly quieter - partly due to the weekly National Theatre At Home and The Shows Must Go On series coming to an end, but there is still a lot to look forward to this week and throughout August. Here are 5 titles you can catch online this week:


WHAT?

Following their hit broadcast of Lungs streamed live from the venue, The Old Vic are producing another title. Three Kings is a brand new play by Stephen Beresford and stars Andrew Scott reflecting on the role his father played in shaping his own life after years of being absent.

WHEN?

The show will be live streaming for five performances from Wednesday 29th July to Saturday 1st August at 7.30pm each night with a matinee at 3.30pm on Saturday.

HOW (Much)?

Tickets were from £10 but the cheaper ones have now sold out. Tickets for £30 and £40 are stil available for most performances.

WHERE?

WHAT?

The Disney movie about the story of Rapunzel hasn't hit Broadway or the West end yet but was adapted into a musical for Disney Cruise Line ships in 2015. The show features all the songs you know and love from the movie including 'When Will My Life Begin', Mother Knows Best' and 'I See The Light' as well as three brand new songs written for the musical by original creators Alan Menkin and Glenn Slater.

Recently seen in Eugenius and City of Angels, Rob has one of my favourite voices in theatre and recently released an EP of songs including a cover of 'She Used To Be Mine'. Expect to be blown away by his and find out a bit more about them as he chats to Alice inbetween his performances.

Admittedly a much quieter week this week but don't forget there are a wide variety of titles still available on broadwayHD.com, Disney+ (what was that show called again?), iPlayer and generally all around the Internet. There are a few new shows premiering in August as well as the return of actual theatre. Look out for a preview of what to expect in August later this week.
