"This is a Hamlet for a world on the edge: a warning from history, and a plea for new ideas from a new generation" - Variety
Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, National Theatre Live will broadcast this eagerly awaited production live to cinemas. As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet (Benedict Cumberbatch) rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. Time Out remarks, "One of the most visually and atmospherically stunning productions I've ever seen, of anything, ever."
National Theatre Live is a groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theatre live from the London stage to cinemas around the world including the Coral Gables Art Cinema! Tickets to these special NTL screenings are $20 and under ($16 for Cinema members).
