Winter Warmer Viewing - Musical Theatre Shows


The nights are getting longer and most of us are also restricted with our movements. So what better than to catch up on some great plays, musicals, shows and more....all for free!


In this blog we're giving a run down of Musical Theatre Shows to watch. Keep updated to see more suggestions for plays and shows.


First up, if you're lucky you can catch 'Everybody's Talking About Jamie' for free on Youtube. This is the live recording that was released in Cinemas across the UK. The links go up and get taken down so if the show is missing try searching for 'a boy who wanted to be a drag queen'.

Another live recording not to be missed is the 2019 show of Rent. An inspiring musical about friends and artists struggling with addiction, poverty, AIDS and most of all, love. Watch all it's grittiness close up in the link below:

From the underground dance clubs of 1950’s Memphis, Tennessee, comes the Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Inspired by actual events, MEMPHIS is about a white radio DJ who wants to change the world and a black club singer who is ready for her big break. Watch the Broadway recording of Memphis here:

A cult classic, which first originated in 1973 and adapted for stage in 1975, The Rocky Horror Picture show is hilarious and bizarre. What's great about this recording is it includes the audience who have become part of the show. Check it out here:

If you have Disney+ you may already have watched Newsies. If you don't have Disney+ don't worry it's still available on YouTube. It's a great watch! Incredible dancing and a good storyline.
