attended National Theatre Live: Antony & Cleopatra on Feb 21 2019

I thought that Cleopatra could've even characterized with more grace befitting a queen. But what we got was a grown up spoiled brat and drama queen who needed to play games with her lover Antony... She displayed lots of tantrums befitting a...continued

attended NTLive screening: All My Sons with Sally Field and Bill Pullman on Jan 23 2020

We had no idea it was going to be televised on a big screen. The play itself is great. Sally Fields did a wonderful job playing the wife and mother. Bill Pullman did a good job playing the father. All the other actors were really good as well.I...continued

Great adaptation of a great play. I enjoyed the pre-performance discussion w/playwright and director. Very illuminating. If this is available on Goldstar again, do not miss it.

attended National Theatre Live: One Man, Two Guvnors "— HD Screening on Sep 05 2019

In the first 10 minutes, we were almost ready to leave. We couldn't understand a word due to the heavy English accents and the English words that we Americans aren't familiar with. I figured I'd stick it out until James came on, and I could...continued

attended National Theatre Live: One Man, Two Guvnors "— HD Screening on Sep 08 2019

James Cordon is a very funny guy and obviously a student of the slapstick greats such as Buster Keaton, Laurel and Hardy., and the Keystone Cops. His high-energy antics in the first act of this show, well they steal the show and are worth the...continued

attended National Theatre Live: Fleabag on Oct 29 2019

This one-woman play is the British, millennial, female version of Philip Roth's "Portnoy's Complaint" and is equally popular among the right audience. I really didn't get into the Roth book, back in the day, nor this play however it's popularity...continued

My first Shakespeare movie and I could not understand what they were saying. A shame they don't translate into English. I don't get the point of using old unintelligible Elizabethan language.

attended NTL: Frankenstein on Oct 13 2019

Stunning set and acting. Marginally kid appropriate given the Creature scene with Elizabeth late in the play. Two hours no intermission.

attended National Theatre Live: All My Sons on Feb 02 2020

I have seen the play a couple of times before, don't remember leaving the theater as devastated as I was yesterday afternoon. Don't know if anything was added, because the last time I saw it might have been more than 25 years ago. The acting was...continued

Excellent performance of this fascinating stage performance by NationalTheaterLive. The Barclay is always a comfortable venue, and this performance was quite popular, with a full, appreciative audience. Fascinating story with excellent...continued

attended National Theatre Live: Allelujah! on Feb 07 2019

It takes a little getting used to a British accent, and some of the cockney and references escaped me. Enjoyed the play, and the venue. Lose something in the translation to watch a play that's filmed, but better than not getting to see it at...continued

I loved watching the play.
Last year there was a glitch with the film. At that time I was disappointed that I did not see the rest of the play.
So when I saw that it was coming back. I ordered my ticket early before the tickets were sold...continued

I actually enjoyed watching taped "live" theater on the big screen and there isn't a better place to do it then the Hammer in San Jose. The use of multiple cameras intrigued me and while I wondered how it faired for the actual audience the cast...continued
