Just because the majority of us are confined to our homes, this doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy some of the theatrical and cultural highlights from a number of our friends and partners…
Rosie Kay Dance Company’s Fantasia
Our Hippodrome Associate Rosie Kay Dance Company are streaming their production of Fantasia this Friday (and the following Wednesday) followed by a live post-show Q&A with the creative team and performers. Three bold female dancers luxuriate in Kay’s signature style of athletic, visceral, raw and technical choreography underscored with a wicked humour.
National Theatre Live: Antony and Cleopatra
The National Theatre continue their popular season of streamed productions with Antony and Cleopatra. This critically-acclaimed 2018 production starring Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo is available from Thursday 7 May at 7pm. You can tune in here.
In the meantime, there’s still a chance to catch both productions of Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberpatch and Jonny Lee Miller here.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s By Jeeves
This Friday, Andrew Lloyd Webber is streaming the Broadway production of By Jeeves – his collaboration with Alan Ayckbourn. Starring Martin Jarvis and John Scherer, the musical is based on P G Woodhouse’s classic characters. Streaming on Friday 8 of May from 7pm, it will be available to watch on YouTube for 48 hours.

BBC Culture in Quarantine: Shakespeare
The BBC are continuing their series of bringing theatrical experiences through the medium of television with a series of stellar Shakespearean plays. You can currently pick from ten different productions here.
One of our top picks is The Globe’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Fusing music, dance and some serious comedy, Emma Rice’s Dream is naughty, tender, transgressive and surprising. Click here to watch.
Royal Albert Home – Marisha Wallace
After her sold-out solo concert in our Patrick Studio earlier this year, the West End’s Marisha Wallace performed a free gig in her living room over the weekend. As part of the Royal Albert Hall’s sessions, Marisha performed hit songs from some of her favourite musicals.
