We’re sure we’re not the only Glasgow am-dram group desperate to hit the stage again or take our seats in a West End show or two…or ten! But while we wait on restrictions easing before we can safety return to the glorious world of musical theatre, we’ve pulled together some musicals to enjoy from the comfort of your sofa.
This original Broadway production on Disney+ is sure to get you in the mood for your return to an evening (or cheeky matinee) at the theatre! Lin-Manuel Miranda not only wrote the musical but starred as its leading man, Alexander Hamilton, too! An incredible mix of song, rap and dance, the musical was an all-out success. And the sixteen Tony nominations (with 11 wins) puts Hamilton in the top spot with total nominations of any musical to date.
Based on the animated film, Shrek the Musical racked up a total of eight Tony nominations, including a win for Best Costume Design, and has enjoyed countless productions throughout the world. The Netflix offering features the original Broadway cast of Brian d’Arcy James, Daniel Breaker and Sutton Foster and will have you singing and dancing in your swamp! Err living room.
Making it’s Broadway debut in 2018, The Prom was given the Tony nom for Best Musical the following year. The Netflix movie version features a stand-out cast including Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and Book of Mormon Star, Andrew Rannells and is a feel-good sensation! Why not don a corsage and make a bowl of punch to get to yourself in the mood?!
