National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren. They have since broadcast more than 40 other productions live, from both the National Theatre and from other theatres in the U.K.
National Theatre broadcasts have now been experienced by over 5.5 million people in over 2,000 venues around the world, including over 650 venues in the U.K. alone. Past broadcasts from the National Theatre have included Danny Boyle’s "Frankenstein" with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller; "War Horse"; "Man and Superman" with Ralph Fiennes; and "Everyman" with Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Broadcasts from other U.K. theatres include "Coriolanus" from the Donmar Warehouse; "A View from the Bridge" from the Young Vic; "Macbeth" from the Manchester International Festival; and "Hangmen and The Audience" from London’s West End. Their biggest single broadcast to date is "Hamlet" with Benedict Cumberbatch at the Barbican, which has been seen by over 550,000 people.
In 2014, the National Theatre recorded its first production on Broadway, "Of Mice and Men" with James Franco and Chris O’Dowd, captured at the Longacre Theatre.

The programs that LLS will show will not be live performances, but pre-recorded programs.
