Hottest front-room seats: the best theatre and dance to watch online

From live streams of new plays to classics from the archive, here are some of the top shows online now or coming soon – this page is updated regularly

Choose your own musical theatre lineup with this neat concept by the Barn theatre’s Ryan Carter, allowing the viewer to curate a concert from a selection of showtunes sung by different performers. There are bangers and ballads from musicals including Into the Woods, Waitress and Chicago. So you might follow leather-clad Allie Daniel’s Mean Girls number with Kayla Carter’s gingham-sporting Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. There must be a hellish spreadsheet behind it all, but the result is a breezy bit of fun for anyone missing musicals. The barnstormer is Natalie Kassanga in the role of Coco from Fame. .
