  • Directed by: Lloyd Bacon
  • Cast: Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, Ginger Rogers

‘Come and meet those dancing feet, on the avenue I’m taking you to – 42nd Street.’ One of the brightest, toe-tapping backstage musical triumphs from Depression era Hollywood, 42nd Street provided a major stepping stone in the career of twenty-two-year-old Ginger Rogers. Ruby Keeler is the chorus girl who steps in to replace an ailing leading lady and emerges a shiny new Broadway star but Rogers steals all her scenes as wise-cracking, gold-digging chorus girl Anytime Annie. Eye-popping choreography from Busby Berkeley is matched by an unforgettable score that includes ‘Shuffle off to Buffalo’, ‘You’re Getting to be a Habit with Me’ and the glorious title track. Part of the Glasgow Film Festival

National Theatre Live: A Midsummer Night's Dream

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

"The course of true love never did run smooth."

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of *A Midsummer Night’s Dream *will build on the success of his immersive staging of *Julius Caesar *(NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.

Please note that this production is not a live broadcast, it is instead filmed live in front of an audience for cinema screenings.

"…the familiar rhythms of marital scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport."

It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport.

Don’t miss this witty and devastating portrait of the governing class, directed by Simon Godwin (NT Live: Antony & Cleopatra, Twelfth Night) and part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday season.

Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many and various relationships compete for his attention, Garry’s few remaining days at home are a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, panic and soul-searching.

Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.

Royal Opera House: Concerto / Enigma Variations/ Raymonda Act III

From The Royal Ballets classical origins in the works of Marius Petipa, to the home-grown choreographers who put British ballet on the world stage, this mixed programme highlights the versatility of the Company. Petipas Raymonda Act IIIis Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while Ashtons Enigma Variationsis quintessentially British in every way - from its score by Elgar and period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, to Ashtons signature style, the essence of British ballet. Concerto, MacMillans fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a programme that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballets heritage.This is a recording of the live broadcast on 5th November.CONCERTOChoreography: Kenneth MacMillanMusic: Dmitry ShostakovichDesigner: Jrgen RoseLighting designer: John B.
