Broadway shows are something that I really look forward to, and having to post this honestly breaks my heart a little bit. While spring Broadway shows may be canceled, there is a way you can watch Broadway shows online for a week without paying a cent. I know, I know, it is not the same as watching a live performance in an actual theater. But with Broadway performances on hiatus until further notice because of COVID-19, us theater enthusiasts need something to do while we socially distance ourselves and flatten the curve. BroadwayHD has a library of around 300 productions and will give you a seven-day free trial, therefore you can stream as many shows, plays and more. First up for me? I\’ll be watching Bye Bye Birdie. Playbill is also offering 15 Broadway plays and musicals that you can watch from the comfort of your couch, and Newsies is one of them!
