During the pandemic many entertainers have been stepping up and offering free entertainment for those staying home. Some of these are only available for 24, 48 or 72 hours as special events. Many are streaming from the UK, so they expire in the various U.S. time zones. The UK ones usually start Friday afternoon. Feel free to chime in with any additional events you may know about!

If you watch Great Performances on PBS, some of these have shown there previously and many are available for streaming if you have PBS Passport. This week's musical is: Pipeline The Shows Must Go On. Since these are on UK time, they disappear Sunday morning or early afternoon U.S. Time zones. This week: Hairspray Stay At Home With Les Misérables | Les Misérables Staged Concert Talk | SceneScreen -- The Staged Concert was aired in the UK, but unfortunately all we have is a behind-the-scenes look.
