All Broadway Musicals Available on DVD and Blu-Ray [2022 UPDATE]

Streaming has certainly made watching filmed Broadway musicals at home more convenient - and the reduced distribution costs have enabled production companies to capture many more shows over the years.

Although streaming platforms definitely make our lives easier, owning a physical copy of your favorite show is an opportunity to watch it whenever you want, without any subscription fees or the fear the content will be taken down by a streamer.

This is our annual list of all the Broadway and West End musicals you can now own on DVD and Blu-Ray, updated for 2022. As part of our review, you'll find Tony Award-winning musicals, Broadway exports filmed in the UK, classic favorites that aired on PBS in the '80s, and even intimate off-Broadway productions.



  • American Utopia (2020)
  • Filmed live in 2019 at Broadway's Hudson Theatre, this critically acclaimed Broadway concert features Award-winning musician Byrne (Talking Heads) and a company of 11 musicians performing songs from Byrne's 2018 album of the same name.

    HBO acquired the distribution rights for the filming and added the concert to streaming platform HBO MAX. The physical media release was handled by Dogwoof Studios, who produced the filming.

    Unlike any other filmed performance on our list, American Utopia is a must-see for Byrne's fans. If you enjoyed Spike Lee's Passing Strange, you probably want to catch this capture.

  • 42nd Street (2019)
  • The London revival of 42nd Street was filmed live in 2019 by Liberator Film Services and later released on both DVD and Blu-Ray on June 7, 2021, making it the first time a complete production of the musical was available to own (apart from the beloved 1933 classic).

    This extravagant production is one of the biggest and most expensive-looking productions we have in our database. A near-replica of the 2001 Broadway revival, the production stars Bonnie Langford, Clare Halse, and Philip Bertioli.

    You can get 42nd Street on DVD & Blu-Ray now.



  • The Spongebob Musical (2019)
  • In a unique move, entertainment giant Nickelodeon filmed The Spongebob Musical long after it closed on Broadway in 2018. Shipping most of the cast and crew from Broadway to the UK, the show was recreated at the Theatre Royal Plymouth.

    The resulting film aired on Nickelodeon in several different versions (Full, edited, and sing-along) and later was released to streaming and DVD. Due to the incredible demand for the show on DVD, Nickelodeon released the musical on Blu-Ray in later months.

    While not featuring the complete set from Broadway's Palace Theatre, the live capture documents the show in full. The DVD release contains the full show together with the Sing-along version that aired on Nickelodeon.

    The SpongeBob Musical is now available on DVD & Blu-Ray.



  • Kinky Boots the Musical (2019)
  • This Tony Award-winning musical, which recently closed off-Broadway, is available to purchase on DVD & Blu-Ray.

    Based on a true story, this Cyndi Lauper-Harvey Fierstein Tony Award-winning musical was filmed in 2019 by Liberator Films after being filmed in London with original leads Matt Henry and Killian Donnelly that specifically returned to the production for the filming days.

    If you ever feel down, Kinky Boots is the perfect musical to "raise you up"!

  • Les Miserables: The Staged Concert (2019)

    While not fully staged, this 2019 version is the closest capture of the stage version of Les Miserables to date. Previous concerts that are also available on DVD include Les Miserables 10th Anniversary Concert at the Royal Albert Hall and Les Miserables in Concert The 25th Anniversary.

  • Holiday Inn: The New Irving Berlin Musical (2017)
  • BroadwayHD's second (and last) live airing from Broadway was Holiday Inn: The Irving Berlin Musical, captured from Studio 54 to thousands of viewers all over the world.

    Several years after the live airing and through a special agreement with Universal Studios, the 75th-anniversary edition of the original 1942 movie included a special bonus disc (both as a DVD and Blu-Ray) featuring the entire filmed musical.

    We'll never forget the magical moment when Holiday Inn began streaming on our screens, live from Studio 54. We also can't forget the technical glitches we've had with the stream. Thankfully, the filmed production is still available in a fully-edited version on DVD and Blu-Ray.

    You can still order Holiday Inn on DVD & Blu-Ray through Universal.



  • Miss Saigon (2016)
  • Filmed by Steam Motion & Sound (Waitress on BroadwayAladdin the MusicalThe Phantom of the Opera), this unique filmed production features a cinematic capture of the West End revival. Due to the show opening on Broadway shortly after the London run, the DVD & Blu-Ray were never released in the US, but are available to import through the UK (The Blu-Ray edition is region-free).

    Miss Saigon stands out from the rest of the musicals on this list thanks to its unique cinematic photography that manages to capture the essence of the stage production while giving viewers a movie-like feel.

    Get Miss Saigon: the 25th anniversary on DVD & Blu-Ray.



  • The Phantom of the Opera (2011)
  • Filmed live in London's Royal Albert Hall, this spectacular production features Ramin Karmiloo and Sierra Boggess. While the anniversary celebration does not feature the original Phantom sets, this newly directed version stayed true to the brilliant original and is a good alternative to the 2004 Joel Schumacher flop.

    The Phantom of the Opera, filmed on stage, is available now on DVD & Blu-Ray.



  • Love Never Dies (2012)
  • After working on a sequel for nearly a decade, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies had an unexpectedly short run in London. Originally set to open on Broadway at the same time, the show never made the move and instead was produced intimately at Melbourne's Regent Theatre several years later.

    Having seen the production in person, Lloyd Webber absolutely loved the Australian take and decided it was the ultimate version of the show. Not only was this version filmed for posterity (thanks to Universal Studios and Lloyd Webber's production company), but all touring productions of the show were set to copy the changes made in Australia. 

    Love Never Dies is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray from Universal Studios.



  • Memphis the Musical (2010)
  • This Best Musical winner was one of the first Broadway productions to be screened in cinemas while still playing on the Broadway stage. The musical was filmed by Broadway Worldwide (Jekyll and Hyde the MusicalSmokey Joe's CafePutting it Together) and was released on DVD and Blu-Ray by Shout! Factory.

    This musical tells the story of DJ Huey Calhoun, a good old "local boy" with a passion for R&B, and Felicia Farrell, an up-and-coming black singer whom he meets and embarks on a dangerous affair with. As their careers progress, the relationship is challenged by personal ambitions and pressures from the outside world that is still unable to accept their love.

    Will Chase, Eden Espinosa, Tracie Thomas, and Adam Kantor star in the filmed version, which includes a special encore with most of the original Broadway cast.

    Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway is now available on DVD & Blu-Ray.



  • Pippin (1981)
  • A classic capture of the original production of Pippin, starring Broadway legends Ben Vereen and Chita Rivera. The show was filmed live on tour at the Hamilton Place Theatre in Ontario.

    Television channel Showtime financed the filming, appointing David Sheehan to direct the filming over Bob Fosse who directed the stage production. Fosse reportedly did not enjoy the finished product and decided to re-edit the final cut to his liking, a cut that was never released publicly. Either way, the capture is a rare glimpse into Broadway of the 70s, and should definitely be on your watch list.

    The original Showtime broadcast of Pippin is available to purchase on DVD!



  • Sophisticated Ladies (1982)
  • Sophisticated Ladies was one of the first Broadway musicals to be broadcast live to television audiences, thanks to Broadway Worldwide (Jekyll and HydePutting it Together). The show aired on PPV in 1982 and was later released on home media.

  • Victor / Victora (1995)
  • The Broadway production of Victor/Victoria was taped specifically for Japanese television in the late '90s starring Julie Andrews reprising her film role on stage. 

    The show is famously remembered for when Andrews declined the her Tony Award nomination for Best Actress when that was the only one the show received.

  • Passion (1996)
  • Stephen Sondheim's Passion was a big winner at the 1994 Tony Awards - winning major awards including Best Musical. Unfortunently, the critical acclaim and awards did not help the show to last long on Broadway, and it closed after less than 6 months.

    Shortly after closing, and before loading out the set out of the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, PBS' American Playhouse filmed the production for television. The musical was later released on VHS and DVD, giving the show new life and exposure to generations to come.

    While the DVD release is currently out of print, copies can be obtained from third party sellers.

    You can still grab a DVD copy of Stephen Soundheim's Passion.



  • Cats (1998)
  • Andrew Lloyd Webber's original musical was captured live on stage at the Adelphi Theatre in the late 90s, long before the infamous Tom Hopper version.

    The stage production of Cats is available to own on DVD and Blu-Ray from Univeral Studios.



  • Oklahoma! (1999)
  • The Hugh Jackman-led 1999 filmed production of Oklahoma! is a perfect capture of the National Theatre's London revival of the classic Broadway musical.

    The musical originally aired on PBS in 2001, and released on DVD at the same time. After acquiring distribution rights, Shout! Factory released a Blu-Ray of the production.

    Oklahoma! is available to purchase on DVD and Blu-Ray.



  • Jekyll and Hyde the Musical (2001)
  • The horror Frank Wildhorn musical Jekyll and Hyde played Broadway for more than 1500 performances in the late '90s, gaining a huge fanbase all over the world. The musical was filmed as part of the short-lived "Broadway Television Network" in the early 2000s, which was an early experiment of having a Broadway-themed pay-per-view station.

    Unfortunately, that endeavor did not last long but this thrilling production of Jekyll and Hyde is one of the few musicals that did get captured for the network.

The plot tells the story of Billy, a motherless boy who trades his boxing gloves for ballet shoes. His personal struggle is balanced against the counter-story of the 1984 UK miners' strike.
