The Show Must Go Online to stream readings of Shakespeare!

Amidst all the chaos, the global arts industry are truly doing what they can to keep spirits up.

The Show Must Go Online is an online group that will read the plays of William Shakespeare in order of their release, and livestream it on Youtube. The project aims to bring actors and audiences together to experience and enjoy the works of the Bard at a time when heading to the theatre just isn’t possible.

“The response to The Show Must Go Online has been overwhelming – so many professional actors and experienced amateurs were willing to donate their time to entertain each other, and an audience.” said Robert Myles, the creator of the project. “The mix of people, the mix of experience, many of whom will be meeting each other for the first time, some of whom are from America and Europe – but all brought together by their love of Shakespeare – these are sights you’d never normally see in a regular production.”

The first reading will be of Two Gentlemen of Verona, will be live-streamed at 6am AEST this Friday 20th March, and will subsequently be available on The Show Must Go Online’s channel.
