National Theatre Live: Coriolanus

National Theatre Live will broadcast the Donmar Warehouse’s production of Coriolanus, Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, with Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse (film), BBC's The Hollow Crown) in the title role and Mark Gatiss (Season's  Greetings at the National Theatre, BBC's Sherlock) as Menenius, directed by the Donmar's Artistic Director Josie Rourke.

When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. Famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.

As a part of the National Theatre Live series, “Coriolanus” will be recorded live in London. Phoenix Art Museum is the exclusive Phoenix-area venue for this thrilling series of great plays.

Cost: $15 Museum Members, students with ID; $18 general admission.  Tickets available here.

Presented in High Definition and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound. Runtime: approx 3hrs.

Multi-ticket packages are also available!
