We run through what's available this week via Sky Arts!

While Sky Arts' usual Sunday slot of a stagey piece is not happening this week (after all the excitement over Romeo and Juliet, we hardly blame them), there is still a plethora of theatre-related content to watch, including the 2018 Ian McKellen documentary and a Bob Fosse exploration.

The timings for this week are slightly extreme, so might be especially advantageous for those working night shifts or early morning!

Let's get to it – remember Sky Arts is free-to-view for UK audiences on channel 11:

Thursday 8 April – Romeo and Juliet – 10.00pm
Sunday 11 April – Otello – 6.00am
Monday 12 April – Australian Ballet: The Merry Widow – 6.00am
Monday 12 April – Bob Fosse: It's Showtime – 7.45am
Tuesday 13 April – Ian McKellen: Playing the Part – 1.00am
