The National Theatre in London is providing free access to streams of some of its much-loved productions.
A series of National Theatre Live productions will free to stream on YouTube for seven days over the next few weeks while the theatre is in the dark due to the coronavirus shutdown measures.
First up, on Thursday 2 April, is “One Man, Two Guvnors”, a farce set in 1963 featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from James Corden (pictured with co-star Rachel Crabbe, photo National Theatre). The Guardian called it “one of the funniest productions in the National's history.” The video will be available on demand until 9 April.
NT productions of “Jane Eyre”, “Treasure Island “and Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” are set to follow on successive Thursdays, with more to come if the shutdown period is extended.
