WHAT: Fathom Events, National Theatre, and BY Experience present The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time and Follies.
NT Live: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night (2021 Encore) Filmed live from the National Theatre in London, this critically acclaimed production, based on the novel by Mark Haddon and directed by Marianne Elliot (Angels in America, War Horse), has astonished audiences around the world and received seven Olivier and five Tony Awards®.
Christopher stands beside Mrs. Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at math while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.
NT Live: Follies (2021 Encore) Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee, and Imelda Staunton play the magnificent Follies in this dazzling production. Featuring a cast of 37 and an orchestra of 21, Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical was directed by Dominic Cooke (The Courier) and filmed live on the London stage at the National Theatre in 2017.
New York, 1971. Thirty years after their final performance, the Follies girls gather to have a few drinks, sing a few songs, and lie about themselves. Winner of Academy, Tony, Grammy, and Olivier awards, Sondheim’s previous work includes A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, and Sunday in the Park with George.
