National Theater Live


Recommended Posts



For those who might not be aware of this wonderful opportunity to see great theater. I saw Othello last night and can't imagine a more gripping production.

Saw Helen Mirren in The Audience a couple of months back and it as wonderful as well. The Benedict Cumberbach/Jonny Lee Miller Frankenstein is up next as well as the

Rory Kinnear Hamlet. Tim Hiddleston's Coriolanus is in January. (Ralph Fiennes Coriolanus on film is wonderful as well) These shows, with many more to come,

are in movie theaters near many of you. Royal Theater of Scotland's Macbeth with Kenneth Brannagh is coming soon.


Royal Shakespeare Company is joining the fray will be showing their productions in the near future. Tonight I see The Donmar Warehouse production of

Merrily We Roll Along. Lovin' this.

I've been promoting NTLive for years. It is one of the best theater experiences you can have without actually spending thousands of bucks to fly to London!


NTLive is having a special series of encore presentations such as Othello, War Horse and other great shows.


Check out Frankenstein being shown in theaters around the US for Halloween. Johnny Lee Miller (Currently starring in TV's Elementary and Benjamin Cumberbatch, currently starring in the film The Fifth Estate) are excellent in the roles of the doctor and the monster, which they alternate.


Coming up, the National Theater's 50th Anniversary special.live from London with Simon Russell Beale, James Corden, Dominic Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch, Frances de la Tour, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Derek Jacobi, Rory Kinnear, Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith and Penelope Wilton and more.


Tickets are in the $20 range, so an inexpensive way to see some fabulous theater productions. Highly recommended for theater enthusiasts!
