The Best Shows To Stream This Week

Week 4082 since theatres closed their doors. Crowds are gathered outside Mary Poppins in Old Compton Street but not because they're seeing a Strallen strut her stuff - it's because they're all consuming a spoonful of tequila instead.


While they do that, let's look at the best shows to stream from the comfort and safety of your own home this week:


WHAT?

The Shows Must Go On has been entertaining us with their weekly titles for nearly four months now. Those that were worried they were running out of titles after the last two weeks were bang on the money as it has been announced that this weeks title will be the last in the series. This week we are ending how we began, with an encore screening of the 2000 production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat starring Donny Osmond. This was first aired before this website existed (Crazy times) so I may continue my tradition and do a review of this over the weekend.

WHEN?

Available for 48 hours from 7pm on Friday 10th July.
