FREE
Any theatre buff's out there? UK's National Theatre is offering free streaming of its shows on its Youtube channel starting Thursday April 2, 7PM UK time (2PM EST).
I'm unclear if the initial 7PM (2PM EST) show is live or not (unlikely) but each play will be on the channel to watch for seven days after it airs until the next one goes live.
Enjoy world-class theatre whilst we’re closed.

Dammit, I think you're right. UK has their own DST change forward this weekend so they'll be 5 hrs ahead. So confusing...

Thanks. Good to know. The more to keep us occupied during isolation, the better.

I am just going to add local theatre here too instead of creating a new thread since people probably look here for other entertainment options

Nightwood Theatre is doing a live read/performance via Zoom and Youtube on Friday at 7:30pm

Just curious, why does start time matter if this is on YouTube anyway?

You're right, it really doesn't since it's available for a week on Youtube until the next play premiers. Just that you can get a better true to life theatre experience attending a "live premiere" Thursdays at 7PM London time, I suppose.
