The National Theatre will prove its national reach, and is extending beyond SE1 this summer. In NT Live, four selected plays will be beamed by live satellite to 50 cinemas across the country, for one night only for £10 per ticket. The filmed performances in London will be cheaper too as moving cameras may detract from 'pure' live show; everybody wins! Helen Mirren in Racine's Phedre will be the first NT Live beamed out beyond the M25 in June; other plays destined to reach the regions are to be confirmed.
