Online Theatre 2022

The Theatreguide.London Reviews

.In March 2020 the covid-19 epidemic forced the closure of all British theatres. Some companies adapted by putting archive recordings of past productions online, others by streaming new shows. And there are past productions worth rediscovering online. With things returning to normal, we continue to supplement our live reviews with coverage of productions you can watch at home.

(Most of these productions continue to be available online after 2022).

Most of the online productions we reviewed earlier are still available.
