I took the Brown line to the Southport stop. An easy pleasant stroll about 10 minutes to the theater. You can browse restaurants lining Southport for a meal later.

having seen it in person in a good seat and loving it at The National this enhanced it even more by giving me a real close up look at facial expressions and all that goes in to making it a riveting experience

The NT production Othello gets att 5 stars (even more, were they available...) Such a fantastic production! Superb acting, and very clever stage design. I'm so grateful for NT Live!!!

But the Music Box just gets 3-4 stars or so. The seats are...continued

Really good performance. Seeing it as a simulcast from London enhanced the experience. Iago was fantastic.

Description

Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC’s Hustle) takes the title role. Playing opposite him as the duplicitous Iago is fellow Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear (The Last of the Haussmans, James Bond: Skyfall), who is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner (Timon of Athens, One Man, Two Guvnors) following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre’s recent production of Hamlet.
