National Theatre Live

NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren. We’ve since broadcast more than fourty other productions live, from both the National Theatre and from other theatres around the world.  Our broadcasts have now been experienced by over 5.5 million people in over 2,000 venues around the world.  Exhibition dates and cinema locations are added frequently. In Australia, the plays are captured live in HD, and screened concurrently, where possible, with the London National Theatre season.
