Every day we share a list of the best online performance to watch right away. But occasionally there are must-see virtual events that require advance registration—almost a nostalgic throwback to the pre-COVID days of buying tickets. We just heard about two major happenings that you need to sign up for right now to watch later:

The New York Times' New Series Offstage: Opening Night
Thursday, June 11 at 7 p.m. ET
Cost: FREE
Register in advance on The Times' website.
To celebrate what should have been the end of the 2019-2020 Broadway season, The New York Times is launching Offstage, a new online series featuring intimate performances of songs and scenes by beloved stage stars, as well as brief interviews. This inaugural event features Tony winners Patti LuPone and Katrina Lenk and the cast of Company performing the show's opening number; Tony winner Mary-Louise Parker delivering a monologue from The Sound Inside; Tina: The Tina Turner Musical star Adrienne Warren singing a hit from the bio-show; Mare Winningham crooning a number from Girl from the North Country, Elizabeth Stanley performing a tune from Jagged Little Pill; and chats with Slave Play scribe Jeremy O. Harris, Six creators Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, and Moulin Rouge! choreographer Sonya Tayeh.

The Old Vic: Lungs
Sunday, June 28 to Friday, July 4
Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, June 10 at 7 a.m. ET
Cost: $12 to $80
Register in advance to find out when tickets go on sale.
Last year, London's lauded Old Vic presented a critically acclaimed mounting of Lungs about a couple, played by The Crown costars Claire Foy and Matt Smith, grappling with the ethical implications of bringing a child into our imperiled world. Written by Duncan Macmillan and directed by Tony winner Matthew Warchus, that production had been scheduled to run at the Brooklyn Academy of Music this spring. Instead, the theatre is remounting it to kick off its Old Vic: In Camera series, showcasing socially distanced performances of plays live-streamed from its stage without an audience. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, June 10 at 7 a.m. ET. Each performance will accommodate up to 1,000 viewers, and tickets will range from £10 to £65, approximately $12 to $80.
