London's recent Rodgers and Hammerstein 80th anniversary concert streams on demand in North America beginning March 24, which also marks the 30th anniversary of the 1994 Broadway revival of Carousel.

The Tony-winning Best Revival of the classic musical won Audra McDonald the first of her historic six Tony Awards for her performance as Carrie Pipperidge. Watch McDonald re-create her Tony-winning “Mr. Snow” in an exclusive clip from the anniversary concert above.

The on-demand stream of My Favorite Things: The Rodgers and Hammerstein 80th Anniversary Concert, capturing a live 2023 performance from London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane, launches with an interactive watch party March 24 at 7 PM ET. Fans will be able to comment and connect as they stream the concert in sync online. The stream, which will be available through March 31, includes the full-length concert with every performance and segment included.

The event was directed and staged by Christopher Gattelli and features a 40-piece orchestra conducted by Simon Lee. The film of the concert, which screened in U.K. movie theatres in February, is directed by five-time BAFTA winner Julia Knowles. A PBS broadcast is scheduled to air via Great Performances May 31 (check local listings).

The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization is presenting, with Concord Originals, Concord Theatricals, Killimanjaro Live/JAS Theatricals, and Trafalgar Entertainment producing.

Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II began collaborating with 1943's Oklahoma!, a landmark musical that is considered the genre's first to fully integrate the book, lyrics, and choreography as agents of forwarding the plot. They would go on to dominate Broadway over the next two decades as both a writing and producing team, writing a string of classic musicals including Carousel, South Pacific, Allegro, The King and I, and The Sound of Music; and producing I Remember Mama and Annie Get Your Gun.

The stream is hosted on the Kiswe platform. Learn more about what's needed to stream the concert on your computer or device here. Kiswe also has instructions for getting streams to your TV via AirPlay or Chromecast.
