The National Theatre Live's latest screening of a world-class arts performance comes to Symphony Space in a live, HD broadcast. JOHN is the creation of the renowned DV8 Physical Theatre, a unique theatrical work that combines movement and spoken word to tell real-life stories in an intense and authentic way. Lloyd Newson, DV8's Artistic Director, interviewed more than 50 men asking them frank questions about such topics as love and sex. One of those men was John.

Reviews & Ratings
1936. Charles Chaplin. 87 minutes. USA. Black & White.
The Little Tramp punches in and wigs out inside a factory where gizmos like an employee-feeding machine may someday make the lunch hour last just 15 minutes. Bounced into the ranks of the unemployed, he teams with a street waif (Paulette Goddard) to pursue bliss and a paycheck, finding misadventures as a roller-skating night watchman, a singing waiter whose hilarious song is gibberish, a jailbird and more. In the end, as Tramp and waif walk arm and arm into an insecure future, we know they’ve found neither bliss nor a paycheck but, more importantly, each other.
