When New York Governor Cuomo announced the Broadway shutdown on March 12, 2020, audience and industry members alike were looking into an unknown future, with formal predictions forecasting that theatres would be able to reopen in April 2020. But as the shutdown extensions continued to roll out, theatre artists found new ways to create beyond the stage, including virtual performances and starting new businesses.

Recording music was another venture that theatre artists looked to during the shutdown. Whether it was producing original music or covers of musical theatre tunes, fans were still able to enjoy the voices of Broadway performers—only now through headphones instead of live onstage.

Take a look at the list below for singles, EPs, and albums from over 50 Broadway artists that have been released since March 12, 2020. All are available to enjoy on Spotify and can be found on most other streaming platforms.

This is a starter list to create your own playlist and is by no means comprehensive. Feel free to share with us the artists you’ve loved listening to during the pandemic on our social media channels!

(Note: This list does not include any holiday music releases, which can be found in this roundup.)
