Due to isolation or lack of shows open, many will be turning to online offerings to get their stage-y fix this festive season. Here's what's on offer – we'll update this list if more are flagged:


A starrily-named show with a wad of stars attached! This multi-WOSAward-nominated, multi-cast, multi-dimensional revival was captured during its West End run and has now been popped online for audiences to sample. Captioned and audio described versions will be available, in partnership with VocalEyes and Stagetext.
