To quote Johnny Rocco…

“I want more!”
More content: Gorgeous production of unparalleled theater. Is it any wonder I want more? understand that the theater releases must make money, but I want them at home, too. It won’t put a penny of NT money at risk because when I can go to a theater I will still buy tickets because the big screen is an even more amazing experience. Am I the only one who wants to watch a play more than one time? When Patrick Stewart’s Macbeth was on Broadway my wife and I had such a great time we bought tix for the next night and had even more fun.
More insight: I’m in my 60’s and quietly geeking out over Shakespeare (many thankis BTW to Ehrin Ziegler’s Chop Bard podcast). Could we get a few thousand hours of behind-the-scenes with the dramaturgs, designers, producers, etc? I’d love to see the raw confusion of a cast’s first reading, pre-rehearsal - and for as many shows as possible. How do the initial themes that the director has in mind when prepping for rehearsal evolve or wither away? How do directing styles differ from show to show? And if we could have a compare/contrast of NT’s many Hamlets over the years!!!! Or Midsummer, or…
SO grateful NT has begun this effort. If only there were something I could do to make this site nearly as iconic as the theater itself.

I Just Want MORE

I’ve had the service for almost a year now and it has been a blessing in these dark times. I live in Georgia, USA and we don’t get to see theater of this standard often. When the National put their shows online during the start of the pandemic it felt like going back to the theater again. It game me hope. Now when I’m at a loss creatively or just need a little pick me up, I open the app and find a show that I’d have never been able to see before. I wish the selection was wider and deeper— but I understand the difficulties that entails— furthermore I think they’re releasing a bunch of new shows this year! This isn’t standard theater, or a “stand in” for theater and it certainly isn’t film— it’s far more alive than film can ever be— but it is exactly what the world needs right now: a series of living breathing moments that ask us to breathe with them and listen. Thank you to all the artists and production staffers! You did it!

Theatre experience in your living room

I got the app as soon as it came out, having enjoyed the free at home performances during the pandemic so much. I miss the theatre and although I can catch local performances have accepted that my chances to see top performances like this live are likely to be few. I like to ‘book’ an evening with a performance and make it a home treat with a glass of wine, some snacks and a chair pulled up close. No, you don’t get the theatre experience (or cinema which I did for a while) but you don’t have to ruin your mood searching for a car parking place, have no other heads in front of yours and can pause to go refill your glass. I have also watched performances I don’t think I ever would have booked to go and see, writing them off as ‘not for me’. This app has been a lifeline and an education. Treat yourself to some amazing performances and experiences and don’t limit yourself to what you think you will like.
