What Theaters are Doing Live Streams This Fall?

We’ve all been missing our live entertainment. It’s been months since coronavirus shut down theaters, concerts, and sporting events. At this point, we’d happily sit through Disney on Ice! Venues have been getting creative with their Audio Visual Hire; streaming services have released premiering movies, sports teams are encouraging fans to purchase cardboard cutouts to fill stadium seats, and creators are releasing surprise albums and live-streaming performances (see Taylor Swift’s flawless 2020 ACM performance and Future’s High Off Life album).

Theaters are no exception — theaters around the world have been hosting live-stream performances, cast talks, and posting previously recorded hit productions for all of us who are missing our shows. One bonus is no dirty looks if you laugh — or cry, or sing — out loud. Here’s a roundup of which theaters doing live streams for audiences.
