Broadway theatres may be dark, but there will be plenty of new online productions of some of classic plays this fall with some starry self-isolating actors, including Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman, Patti LuPone, Laura Linney and David Alan Grier.

Hamilton producer Jeffrey Richards on Wednesday (Oct 7) unveiled a weekly play run of livestreamed works to benefit The Actors Fund. They will stream on Broadway’s Best Shows and ticket buyers can access the events through TodayTix starting at US$5 (S$6.80). The series will last seven weeks.

The push begins Oct 14 with Gore Vidal's The Best Man starring Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Zachary Quinto, Phylicia Rashad, Vanessa Williams, Reed Birney, Stacy Keach and Elizabeth Ashley.

On Oct 20, a production of Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth will star Lucas Hedges, Paul Mescal and Grace Van Patten. David Mamet’s Race is up on Oct 29, starring David Alan Grier and Ed O’Neill.

Mamet’s Boston Marriage is slated for Nov 12 with Patti LuPone and Rebecca Pidgeon. A revival of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, adapted by Neil LaBute, follows on Nov 19 with Alan Cumming, Samira Wiley, Constance Wu and Ellen Burstyn.

On Dec 3, the original Broadway cast of Donald Margulies’ Time Stands Still reunites with Eric Bogosian, Brian d’Arcy James, Laura Linney and Alicia Silverstone. The last effort is Robert O’Hara’s Barbecue on Dec 10 with Carrie Coon, Colman Domingo, S Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Metcalf, David Morse and Kristine Nielsen.
