From Stars in the House to Jake Gyllenhaal singing an original mini-musical, from Ratatouille the TikTok Musical to Sondheim’s 90th birthday concert, as well as countless Zoom readings and remarkable video experiments, the year since the shut down of physical stages in March 2020 has been filled with a vibrant stream of online theater that has reinvigorated, and reimagined, an ancient art form.
Experience it all (quickly) by watching the video below, which starts with brief snippets of what was on Broadway — Moulin Rouge, Jagged Little Pill, Girl from the North Country, and Tina — when COVID-19 abruptly silenced it all.
Below the video are links to my reviews of those online shows that make an appearance.
