Did you know that Shakespeare's theater closed down during the plague? Poor dude! He didn't have the internet.
But we do!

And for the best news of all
The National Theater in London is offering EVERY THURSDAY free screenings of sold out West End and Broadway shows. The THING IS...they are being screened at 7pm BRITISH time. Which means we have to tune in on Thursday afternoons at 2 pm. The first show they are screening next week is One Man Two Guvners! Which is utterly brilliantly hilarious and stars James Corden of late night telly! So watching this space: https://www.youtube.
