"Theatre at its most seductive." - Evening Standard
Following the hugely successful broadcasts of Coriolanus and King Lear, National Theatre Live brings the Donmar Warehouse’s highly anticipated new production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses to cinemas - broadcast live from the Donmar’s London home. Former lovers, the Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont now compete in games of seduction and revenge. While these merciless aristocrats toy with others’ hearts and reputations, their own may prove more fragile than they supposed. In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos’ novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalized the world. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton's irresistible adaptation swept the board, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. Director Josie Rourke (Coriolanus) now marks the play’s thirty year anniversary.
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 screenings are $20 and under ($16 for Cinema members). Friday screenings feature English subtitles as part of our commitment to make programs more accessible to d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
