Even though in-person theatre and dance are back in full swing, in the name of accessibility we're continuing to round up performances to watch online from the comfort of home. Our curated list spotlights the five best options to stream this weekend, Friday, March 29 to Sunday, March 31, for free or at low cost.

The New Group: The Seven Year Disappear

Streaming Friday, March 29 at 7:30pm; Saturday, March 30 at 2 and 8 p.m.; Sunday, March 31 at 2 p.m. ET for $69.

The New Group is currently presenting an in-person production of The Seven Year Disappear and the final four performances are being live-streamed to at-home audiences courtesy of The League of Live Stream Theater. Two-time Tony winner Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, The Little Foxes, Sex and the City) stars as an acclaimed performance artist and absent mother in Jordan Seavey's world premiere. After seven years of silence, she seeks out her struggling son (Taylor Trensch), but it's not for sentimental reasons. Instead, she has a stunning request that may tear them apart forever. Scott Elliott directs.

In 2020, London's lauded National Theatre launched its own streaming service featuring professional stage captures of its productions. While you can buy a subscription, shows are also available to rent individually. New to the roster is The Father and the Assassin, Anupama Chandrasekhar's acclaimed drama about Nathuram Godse (Olivier Award winner Hiran Abeysekera), the Indian journalist and activist who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi. The play chronicles Godse's life over three decades as he transforms from Gandhi follower to foe. A 72-hour rental costs $8 and captions are available.
