February 19, at 7:30pm

Laurel & Hardy, one of the world's great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can’t quite shake their past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Ollie’s failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership. Aware that they may be approaching their swan song, they try to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.

National Theatre Live: Allelujah!

February 21, at 7:00pm

The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a small town in Yorkshire, is threatened with closure as part of a money-saving efficiency drive.  A documentary crew, eager to capture its fight for survival, follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of its old people's choir.   Alan Bennett's sharp and hilarious new play is "just what the doctor ordered" (Daily Telegraph).  Don't miss this acclaimed production full of "sing-alongs and stinging wit" (Guardian), filmed live at London's Bridge Theatre during its limited run.     

 

 

Live at the Met: La Fille du Regiment

March 2, at 1:00pm

Tenor Javier Camarena and soprano Pretty Yende team up for a feast of bel canto vocal fireworks - including the show-stopping tenor aria “Ah! Mes amis,” with its nine high Cs - in Gaetano Donizetti's La Fille du Regiment. This frothy comedy mixes humor with a rush of buoyant melody and notorious vocal challenges. The story concerns a young orphan girl raised by an army regiment as their mascot and begins at the moment of her first stirrings of love. Complications (and comedy) ensue when her true identity is discovered.
