Hey all, it came up in another thread that some of us might enjoy watching some shows on BroadwayHD.

If I sign up for the free trial, would anyone be interested in some watch parties? The free trial is only 7 days long so we wouldn't have time for too much, though I might be willing to pay for a month or two if there's enough interest.

Here's the full list of shows available: https://www.broadwayhd.com/categories/all-titles

So far The Prince of Egypt and Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat have been mentioned.
@Boreas Silverfir @Aduiavas Ida @Adina al'Mari

And I'm pretty much always game for anything Andrew Lloyd Webber. :laugh:

I would be interested if it was at a time when I would be awake. (aka, not American evening ;) )

Hairspray was really good on Broadway when I saw it back in the early 00's.
I've wanted to see "into the woods" for a while and my favorite "Les Miserables" is in the catalog too.

Better make sure @Adina al'Mari can watch on the night we do that one.

I'm interested by the thumbnail of Sir Patrick Stuart staring in "The Scottish Play"

Oh! they have the original Broadway cast from the 1979 production of "Sweeny Todd"! That's great news. Angela Lansbury was great in the role of Mrs Lovit.

Yes! Sweeny Todd and Into the Woods! I will hard pass on Les Miserables though. I'm neutral about the Scottish Play.

I don't think we've discussed why no Victor Hugo, but that can wait for one day more.

I'll be honest, I'm all Cats! Out. It was a favorite of a family member and now I remember the words to the chorus of "Rum Tum Tugger" and "magical Mr mephesto..."

Same! Except I plan to be traveling (still with lots of downtime) and I'm not sure how well hotel wifi would handle things.
I'm down. In the meantime, Phantom is on YouTube for free... It's an incredibly well done version.
I love that version so much!

Okay simple question for those interested: Do we want to try something in the week between Christmas and New Year's, or wait until after the holidays have passed and try something in January?

I am good with whatever is good for you, Megana. You're the one putting in the work. We can accommodate you, especially if this ends up costing you money.

Over the past few days my life forcibly reminded me that I have to be super flexible with my planning because my family is chaotic. 😅 Which is why I should probably not be the one hosting events, when even my attendance is iffy.

BUT it sounds like there's a good amount of interest so if things change we should totally make this happen in the future!
