With theatres closed indefintely, we are crying out for just one singular sensation...
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to wave our jazz hands from the comfort of our own home - even if we are on our (Sweeney) Todd...
If you have not yet seen the multi Tony award-winning Broadway sensation that is Hamilton fear not, as 2020 saw its release on the streaming service Disney Plus, with the original broadway cast. Disney Plus is a subscription service at 6.99/month but with Hamilton, Mary Poppins, Hello Dolly and a host of other musicals available on the platform you will get plenty of chitty chitty bang for your buck - see what we did there?!

Christmas may be over but Ryan Tubridy’s Singing in the Rain from last year’s Toy Show is not just for the holidays. Get the rain mac and the wellies on and get ready for love!
POWERING UP THE STAGE
While we wait for the curtain to lift again, the good people at The Bord Gais Energy Theatre have produced an original online series of performances to keep us going. Musical theatre performances include Susan McFadden singing hits from Wicked and Cats. Meath man and Broadway star Killian Donnelly, who was due to play the title role Phantom of the Opera in the theatre last year treats us to Music of the Night. All are available via the Bord Gais Energy Theatre Facebook Page.
Transform your kitchen every Saturday afternoon into a world of pure imagination. Aedin Gormley on Lyric FM brings you the very best of musical hits and movie scores. And if once a week simply isn't enough, her back catalogue is available on demand via the RTE Radio Player app - stream it online here.
The acclaimed 2005 stage musical, based on the hit movie of the same name, tells the story of a young boy who begins taking ballet lessons set against the backdrop of the miner's strike in 1980s England. Not only is the storytelling visually stunning, but the songs are written by the one and only Elton John. Available to watch on-demand via Sky Arts.
