National Theatre Live is an exciting initiative to broadcast live performances of the best of British theatre to cinemas around the world.
National Theatre Live: Travelling Light
Directed by Nicholas Wright
For the first time ever, National Theatre Live broadcast two separate performances of a production. Throughout the run of Frankenstein, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternated the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature. Audiences in cinemas had the chance to see both combinations.
The second season concludes on 30 June with Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, with Zoe Wanamaker.The performances are nominated in advance to allow the cameras greater freedom in the auditorium.
