The National Theatre is the largest theatre-producing complex in the world. It stages over 20 productions a year to audiences of more than 600,000 people. Home to a vast range of activity, both on and offstage, we reach people around the world in many ways, including extensive education and outreach programmes, a free summer theatre festival, touring, live cinema broadcasts and rich digital resources. Since its inception in 1963, the National Theatre has staged well over 700 productions and developed a rich archive of creative projects and inspiring resources. This collection features video about the three very different theatres in the building and what it takes to run them. The video is formatted for iPad/Mac/PC.
The Theatrefolk Podcast
A weekly podcast discussing playwriting, performance and the world of theatre from a human (and slightly dorky) perspective.
Besides the blogs, podcasts, online courses and Youtube videos included in this guide, information can also be found in other social media. A number of actors, set designers, directors etc. are on Twitter and have their own blogs or FaceBook pages. Topsy.com is a new aggregator for social media - experiment with it using the suggested search terms and see what resources it results in.
A Younger Theatre is a platform for young people to express their views on theatre and performance. The site is maintained, edited and published by under 26 year olds who all have a passion for theatre.
We are an independent web site bringing you irreverent, colorful commentary on Broadway and it’s attendant community of artists and fans. We strive to capture what’s happening (or not happening) in theater, and what you love, love to hate, and just plain can’t stand about it. The number of things we love about theater: Infinite. The number of prisoners we take: Zero.
