NT Live - UK's National Theater
NT Live is a groundbreaking initiative by the UK’s National Theatre to broadcast live performances of plays onto cinema screens around the world. See plays put on by one of the most prestigious theaters in the world right here in Hudson – without the airfare. The NT stage performance will be filmed live in high definition and broadcast via satellite to movie theatres and performing arts centers throughout the UK and Europe, and on a time-delay basis to sites in the US including Time & Space Limited.
TSL is excited to confirm the first details for the fourth season of National Theatre of London that will launch in September, 2012. The National is planning a schedule of six to eight presentations this season to be announced as soon as possible.

"The Audience is going to be one of the theatrical highlights of 2013." - Daily Mail
Helen Mirren reprises her Academy Award winning role as Queen Elizabeth II in the highly-anticipated West End production of The Audience, broadcast as part of National Theatre Live.
For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace - a meeting like no other in British public life - it is private. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said. Not even to their spouses.
The Audience breaks this contract of silence - and imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Downing Street incumbents and their Queen. From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister has used these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional - sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive.
From young mother to grandmother, these private audiences chart the arc of the second Elizabethan Age. Politicians come and go through the revolving door of electoral politics, while she remains constant, waiting to welcome her next Prime Minister.
The Audience reunites writer Peter Morgan and Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren following their collaboration on the critically-acclaimed movie sensation The Queen.
The Audience is directed by Academy Award-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and presented in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions, Robert Fox and Andy Harries.
