What are HD productions like??

Here is a short clip from London's National Theatre illustrating what National Theatre Live is.  All our HD Stage on Screen productions are similar in nature, whether they are ballets, concerts, plays and musicals, or special events.

42nd Street - The Musical

Jul 26 2019 - 7:00pm

General Admission $15, $10 Students, $116 Flex Subscription

One of Broadway's most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street, comes to cinema screens in the largest-ever production of the breathtaking musical.  Set in 1933, the musical tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.

Peggy arrives in New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, and her talent catches the attention of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh.  She gets a spot in the chorus of the musical-within-the-musical, Pretty Lady.

Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl.  When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found - a new girl like Peggy Sawyer!

Captured live on film in 2018 at London's Theatre Royal, the production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble.  The glittering extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards ("Lullaby of Broadway," " We're in the Money," "Dames," "Shuffle Off to Buffalo," "42nd Street" and more), and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.

The show opened on Broadway in 1980, winning the Tony Award for Best Musical and Best Choreography; in London's West End in 1984, it won the Olivier Award for Best New Musical.  The 2001 Broadway revival then won the Tony for Best Revival.

A night at the theatre doesn't get larger-scale than 42nd Street, so come and meet those dancing feet, tapping away at the Theatre Royal in this incredible cinematic production.

The Audience

Aug 9 2019 - 7:00pm

General Admission $15, $10 Students, $116 Flex Subscription

Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren plays Queen Elizabeth II in the Tony Award-winning production of The Audience.  Captured live from London's West End in 2013, the original broadcast returns to international cinemas to mark National Theatre Live's 10th anniversary.

For more than 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 12 prime ministers in a private weekly meeting.  This meeting is known as "the audience."  No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses.

From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, and finally then-PM David Cameron, the Queen advises her prime ministers on all matters both public and personal.  Through these private audiences, as imagined in this production, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shape a monarch.

The Audience is written by Peter Morgan (The Queen) and directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Stephen Daldry.
