National Theatre Live is the groundbreaking project by London’s National Theatre to broadcast the best of British theater live from the London stage to cinemas across the UK and around the world.  The RBFS will present each broadcast “as live” at a later date, after it is captured as it occurs in London. Each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theater, and cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the “best seat in the house” view of the production.  Where the cameras are placed is different for each broadcast, to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.

All children, except one, grow up. Captured live at the National Theatre, JM Barrie’s much-loved tale Peter Pan comes to the screen. When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy (Madeleine Worrall, Jane Eyre) helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook (Anna Francolini) await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues. A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson (“NT Live: Jane Eyre”) directs this wondrously inventive co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre.

This is an edgy and dazzling production that lights up the theater. It is a big, brilliant adventure and amazingly inventive. The main ideals of the show remain intact, bringing home the play’s message of childhood loss, the difficulty of growing up and being human. This magical interpretation of Peter Pan will make you want to join in the fun.

Radio Times gives it 5 stars and calls the show, “Dazzlingly inventive. A rough, tough, spellbindingly imaginative production of JM Barrie’s classic play.” The Guardian says Peter Pan is “Unforgettable. Delightful. Magic.” (Rated PG. Runtime 2 hours 45 minutes, including an intermission).
