National Theatre Live: “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead”
by Tom Stoppard
starring Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire and David Haig
directed by David Leveaux
Thursday, Aug. 10, at 7 p.m.
Ethel M. Barber Theater, 30 Arts Circle Drive
Against the backdrop of “Hamlet,” two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take center stage. As the pair of friends stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.
Daniel Radcliffe (“Harry Potter,” “The Woman in Black”), Joshua McGuire (“The Hour”) and David Haig (“Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “The Witness for the Prosecution”) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliant situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London. David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
Single tickets are $16 general admission and $10 for full-time students with valid ID.
Tickets to all SummerStage events are available now through the Wirtz Center website.
