BroadwayHD announced a slew of new titles that will become part of its streaming catalogue starting later this month and next.

Starting September 7, the 2017 revival of Noël Coward's Present Laughter will be made available to stream. The production, which played at St. James Theatre earlier this year, stars Kevin Kline in a Tony Award-winning performance alongside Kate Burton, Kristine Nielsen, Cobie Smulders, and others under the direction of Moritz von Stuelpnagel.

Available to stream right now are three Shakespeare plays filmed from the Stratford Festival in Ontario in 2015: Antony and Cleopatra, King John, and King Lear.

From August 31 to September 29, BroadwayHD subscribers will have exclusive access to a filmed performance of a July 2016 Carole King concert at the BST Hyde Park festival in London in which she not only performed her classic 1971 album Tapestry in its entirety, but performed "I Feel the Earth Move" with Cassidy Janson and members of the London cast of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

September 14 brings the 2000 Roundabout Theatre Company revival of George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart's The Man Who Came to Dinner, featuring a cast led by Nathan Lane, Jean Smart, and Harriet Harris. The production, directed by Jerry Zaks, was Roundabout's inaugural production at the American Airlines Theatre.

On September 21, If I Forget, by Steven Levenson (Dear Evan Hansen), will be available on BroadwayHD. The production, which made its world premiere earlier this year at Roundabout Theatre Company's Laura Pels Theatre, was directed by Daniel Sullivan and featured Larry Bryggman, Maria Dizzia, Tasha Lawrence, Jeremy Shamos, Seth Steinberg, and Kate Walsh.

And finally, starting September 28, five recordings of the global Irish dance phenomenon Riverdance will be available: two documentaries, Riverdance: The 10 Years (2005) and Riverdance: Today's Stars (2007); and three filmed live performances, Riverdance: Live From Beijing (2010), Riverdance: China (2004), and Riverdance: Live From New York City (1996).
