Fantastic Theatre!

Helen Mirren is a force of nature--and the rest of the cast is outstanding. What a treat to see this production--on our side of the pond!

Wonderful surprise!

We liked everything about the play. The various prime ministers were projected as fascinating characters wrapped in their intense polical personas, and the queen was ruly majestic. The facial acting of all players was fascinating to watch, making the cinema presentation better than going to the play. Thanks. We hope to see as many future NT cinema presentations as we can. We hope that you will expand to more theatres near us.

Wonderful theater and a real tour de force for the whole cast. The format was just perfect for a telecast and the play writing was superb. Please tell me why it was not playing in Boulder or Denver, CO. We drove 36 miles to see this telecast. And only found out about by pure happenstance Last year there were 4 National Theater Telecasts at the Cinemark in Boulder. Maybe the reason is poor attendance, but there was virtually no advertising apart from previews at the Cinema. This is not the way to market such excellent theater. It can be successful witness the Met opera telecasts and you are appealing to the same audience. I would appreciate a response Thank you

It was a privilege and pleasure to be able to see this wonderful live play. Loved every minute of it. We want to see more National Theater live performances. Have often wondered why live theater wasn't filmed so people from all over can enjoy it.

Fantastic. We had seen the play in London in April - Mirren is fantastic in person and we had to go back and see the live streaming one more time to catch all the lines.
