National Theatre Live (NT Live) is a successful initiative to capture live performances from the National Theatre of London’s stages and screen in cinemas worldwide. Since its first season, which began in June 2009 with the acclaimed production of Phédre starring Helen Mirren, over 750,000 people have now experienced the National’s work on movie screens worldwide.
In addition to Mirren’s unforgettable performance as Phédre, NT Live audiences around the globe have been treated to Rory Kinnear’s acclaimed performance as Hamlet, Jonny Lee Miller & Benedict Cumberbatch’s Best Actor Olivier award winning performances as Frankenstein & the Creature, James Corden’s Tony-winning performance in One Man, Two Guvnors and many more.
Season four titles include the stage adaptation of best-selling novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, new play The Last of the Haussmans starring Julie Walters, Simon Russell Beale in William Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens, and Victorian farce The Magistrate starring John Lithgow.
Exhibition dates and cinema locations are added frequently. All listings for Australian cinemas are available at www.ntlive.info. These performances are captured live from the National Theatre in London. Additional titles for 2013 will be announced soon.
