Regional Theatre Productions Available to Stream

Published April 3, 2020, Updated April 21, 2020
Across the country, all of our theatres have been forced to go dark. Despite this, our theatres are sewing masks and gowns for healthcare workers, putting education courses online to serve kids within their communities, and, lucky for all of us, some of them are making their shows available online.
So, whether you live in Dallas, New York City, or San Diego, we are thrilled to share these plays from across the country with you. Here is a guide to a few of our theatres’ shows currently available for streaming in the comfort of your home.
Though it isn’t the same as being in the room, we are so grateful to experience these productions.

Setting off from Miami, a Haitian immigrant named Jean takes a once-in-a-lifetime road trip out west. Decades later, his son Jonah heads east, following Jean’s route in reverse—and discovering he’s inherited his father’s love of Appalachian folk music. Separated by time, yet side by side, the two men trace their journeys and the complicated bond they share. With lyrical storytelling and live music, this play vividly imagines how a father and son who longed to connect might come to see each other at last.

From the cacophony of telephone party lines, to CB radios on lonely highways, to the glory days of online chat rooms, technology has revolutionized the way we communicate with each other. But is it always for the better? In this collection of boldly original short plays, three writers and this season’s Professional Training Company explore the high-tech evolution of our social interactions. Are our devices getting in the way of quality, in-person time with our friends and family? Or could they be another pathway to intimacy?

This biting and buoyant comedy, “ferociously entertaining, as heartwarming as it is hilarious” (The Hollywood Reporter), arrives in Chicago on the heels of a critically acclaimed, extended run Off-Broadway. As the reigning queen bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school sets her sights on the Miss Universe pageant, a new student unexpectedly changes the game. Don’t miss this “nasty-teen comedy, wonderfully refreshed and deepened” (The New York Times) that spotlights the universal similarities—and glaring differences—of teenage girls around the globe.
