Star performances

Here’s how to get tickets to the hottest theatre acts coming to the big screen.

There’s nothing like the thrill of live theatre: the lights go down and your acting heroes step into the spotlight, so close you can hear them breathe. Watch a live broadcast and up on the big screen, they’ll seem even closer. Especially when you’ve got the best multi-camera directors adapting to the stage performance, making sure to capture each twitch of emotion, every moment of beauty.

It’s a unique experience for the actors, too. But don’t listen to us - here’s what they’ve said about it:

Kevin McNally in King Lear

Christopher Eccleston in RSC Live: Macbeth 11 April

Something wicked this way comes. The famously intense Eccleston has never performed for the RSC before, so what he does with the murderous king in this live broadcast from Stratford should be something to savour forever.

Rory Kinnear and Anne-Marie Duff in NT Live: Macbeth 10 May

Most famous as M’s assistant in the James Bond films, Rory Kinnear is a Shakespearean actor without equal - except by Anne-Marie Duff, a theatre star long before her role in TV’s Shameless. Putting them together as the fatal king and queen is such a guaranteed smash that National Theatre tickets have sold out already. Let the big screen be your front row seat.
