Michael Grandage directs Emma Corrin in Neil Bartlett’s joyous new adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s modern masterpiece – Orlando. Leading an eleven-strong company in a bold new staging, Olivier Award nominee Emma Corrin returns to London’s West End in one of the most surprising stories in the English language.

BWW Review: Simon Godwin's Production of ROMEO AND JULIET

The thing about Romeo and Juliet – but you know this, Grasshopper – is that it isn’t a love story – not at all, not even a little bit. It is rather a story of desperation, ego and self-regard. Juliet is a thirteen-year-old girl who has just been given the alarming news that she will be forced to marry a man she’s never met.

Review Roundup: Josh O'Connor & Jessie Buckley Star in The National Theatre's ROMEO & JULIET

Golden Globe winner and star of 'The Crown Josh O'Connor and 'Fargo' star Jessie Buckley lead the original film for television by The National Theatre, Great Performances: Romeo & Juliet, which premieres tonight, Friday, April 23 at 9 p.m.

BWW Review: ROMEO & JULIET, Sky Arts

Simon Godwin’s much-hyped version of Romeo & Juliet at the National Theatre was originally slated for summer 2020. Not to be outdone by the pandemic, a new version was filmed in just seventeen days on a closed set in the Lyttleton theatre and is now being broadcast on Sky Arts. Combining elements of both stage and screen, this is a unique and magical version of Shakespeare’s iconic play.
