The Rosendale Theatre is excited to present broadcasts from the NATIONAL THEATRE in London. Once a month | 2:00 PM | $12/$10 members
National Theatre Live began in 2009 with a production of “Phedre” that was seen by a worldwide audience of more than 50,000. Now three years later, the series that broadcasts current plays at London’s National Theatre to movie theaters has reached nearly 1 million viewers.
“The history of filmed theater doesn’t have a great track record, so we went into the series as something of an experiment,” says David Sabel, who oversees digital media at the National. “But we feel we have very successfully captured the productions, honoring the integrity of the work created for our stages.”
If you live in Britain, the plays are seen live via satellite, but because of the time difference, here they are on a delayed feed and can be screened up to four weeks after the original airing.
“The series is a compliment to the local theater scene,” notes Diane Claussen, managing director of the Theatre and Interpretation Center. “And the price point is so good people can add this to their theater-going experience.”
