    How to Watch Broadway Shows Online for Free Right Now

    • Here’s the scoop on how to watch Broadway shows and musicals online.
    • BroadwayHD lets people stream shows for free for seven days.
    • Disney Plus also offers Hamilton and Newsies if you’ve got a subscription, while Netflix offers Diana: The Musical and a new movie adaptation of Tick, Tick…Boom!

      Update: November 19, 2021

      Broadway is back after the longest shutdown in history! This is certainly cause for celebration while hightailing it to the box office, but if jetting to NYC isn’t an option for you right now, there are still plenty of ways to catch a Broadway show from the comfort of your couch.

      Last month, Broadway’s Diana: The Musical hit Netflix a month *before* its big NYC premiere. Diana: The Musical is based on (you guessed it) Princess Diana’s life, and the scathing reviews had a field day with it.

      Kerry Washington’s Broadway play American Son, Shrek the Musical, Springsteen on Broadway, Oh, Hello, and the Jersey Boys movie are all on Netflix in case Lady Di isn’t your cup of tea. And starting today, you can also watch the movie adaptation of Tick, Tick…Boom! on Netflix too.

      If you’re looking for something off Netflix’s platform, though, then Disney Plus offers Hamilton, Hello Dolly! the movie, and Newsies.

      And if none of those are your jam and/or you don’t have streaming accounts, BroadwayHD gives new users a full week of access for free, so you can enjoy its offerings without worrying about the bill. It currently offers productions of An American in Paris, Kinky Boots, The King and I, Cats, Falsettos, and Sunday in the Park With George, among others.

      Original story: March 19, 2020

      Have you already slammed through every season of your favorite reality TV show and succumbed to watching Cats four times? (No? Just me?) Either way, if you’re looking for something new to occupy your time, pause your 5,000-piece puzzle for a second to check out the latest news in streaming: There’s now a way to watch Broadway shows online this week without paying a cent.

      No, it’s not the same as watching a live performance in an actual theater. But with all of Broadway on hiatus because of the coronavirus, we theater nerds have to do *something* while staying safely socially distanced beyond just playing the Beetlejuice musical soundtrack until our ears bleed. (Although, honestly, that’s great too.)

      Thankfully, we’ve found the Link Larkin to our Tracy Turnblad in the form of streaming service BroadwayHD. The platform offers up performances of musicals like Kinky Boots, The King and I, Sound of Music, and even Cats, if you want to see what the horror movie you just watched was attempting to channel.

      To take advantage of the deal, head to BroadwayHD, which has a library of about 300 productions on hand. It’ll give you a seven-day free trial so you can stream as many shows, plays, and ballets as your musically deprived heart desires.

      If that’s not enough, you could also check out Digital Theatre (which has a lot of British productions specifically) or even Amazon Prime, which has seven versions of King Lear on it, in case mastering King Lear is *really* important to you for some reason.

      Because even if the show can’t go on…there’s no harm in pretending otherwise for a couple hours. At least until we’re safe and the theaters open up again.
