With in-person theatre out of commission for the foreseeable future, many companies and performers from Broadway and beyond are showcasing their work online. Below are performances you can watch today, Monday, June 29, from the comfort of your couch for free (or at very low cost).

At 3 p.m. ET, The Civilians, an invaluable Off-Broadway theatre company whose documentary-inspired productions include multiple musicals (Gone Missing, This Beautiful City, Pretty Filthy), shares an excerpt from its latest in-development show Against Women & Music. The cast includes April Matthis from Toni Stone and Be More Chill's George Salazar. Register in advance in order to receive the free viewing link.

Still, it’s rarely used in a sincerely positive way when applied to a dramatic performance. Perhaps that explains why Shatner turned to comedy later in his career.

Pan Asian Rep: NuWorks 2020: Une SAison En Unfer

At 5 p.m. ET, Pan Asian Repertory Theatre brings its annual NuWorks developmental series online. Tonight's reading is Une Saison En Enfer, Shigeko Sara Suga's exploration of Arthur Rimbaud's dysfunctional romance with fellow 19th-century French poet Paul Verlaine. Register in advance in order to receive the free viewing link.

Frank Wood and Mary Testa in Bad Daughter

At 7 p.m. ET, Tony winner Frank Wood and three-time Tony nominee Mary Testa play overbearing parents in Bad Parents, a comedy by Julie Weinberg about a young woman who is forced to leave her secret and exciting life in Paris in order to care for her ailing father in New Jersey. Maria-Christina Oliveras, Lindsay Brill, RJ Vaillancourt and Kelechi Ezieabout round out the cast of this Create Theater reading. Register in advance in order to receive the free viewing link.

The Metropolitan Opera: La Fille du Régiment

At 7:30 p.m. ET, the Metropolitan Opera shares La Fille du Régiment, Gaetano Donizetti's beloved romantic comedy about an orphan girl raised by a regiment of French soldiers who ends up falling for a rebel. Pretty Yende, Stephanie Blythe, Javier Camarena and Maurizio Muraro star in this 2019 mounting, which features a cameo by Oscar-nominated actress Kathleen Turner. Watch for free for 23 hours after the start time on the Metropolitcan Opera's website. You can still stream yesterday's opera, Die Zauberflöte, until 6:30 p.m. ET today.

Pride Plays: The Men from the Boys

It's your last chance to watch a reading of The Men from the Boys, Mart Crowley's sequel to his groundbreaking 1968 play The Boys in the Band, a frank, witty and poignant portrait of a group of gay men in the pre-Stonewall era. The Men from the Boys features many of the same characters 35 years later reuniting at a funeral, with some younger gay men in tow. Zachary Quinto, who starred in the Tony-winning revival of The Boys in the Band in 2018, directs a cast that includes Tony winner Denis O'Hare, Tony nominee Lou Liberatore, Mario Cantone and Telly Leung. Watch for free until 7 p.m. ET on YouTube though donations to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS are encouraged.
