Someone on another forum said his son's school has sent an email out to all pupils inviting them to a virtual school trip to the National - they are to watch One Man Two Guvnors, and share photos of them eating ice cream etc in the interval. Nice idea!
Bunch of stuff being made available for free from the Globe
From 6 April, we're releasing six free #GlobePlayer films, including:
Romeo & Juliet, 2009
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, 2013
The Winter’s Tale, 2018
The Two Noble Kinsmen, 2018
The Merry Wives of Windsor, 2019
What’s more, our 2012 #GlobetoGlobe Festival productions, which saw artists from all over the world explore Shakespeare’s works in their own language in our wooden O, will also be freely available on #GlobePlayer.
But that’s not all!
All 37 films from #TheCompleteWalk will also be free on #GlobePlayer. From Verona to Athens to Denmark, these films were set in the locations Shakespeare imagined, with actors including James Norton, Gemma Arterton, Meera Syal and Simon Russell Beale.
For me the very best things to watch online fall into two categories. First, the shows I never expected to be able to see again, like One Man Two Guvnors with James Corden and Eugenius from The Other Palace. Second the ones we mustn't mention and shouldn't really be there at all but it's very satisfying to find and watch something that would otherwise probably be gone forever but has been preserved.
