THEATRE HISTORY WILL BE MADE WHEN A LIVE CINEMA BROADCAST OF THE WEST END GALA OPENING NIGHT OF GREAT EXPECTATIONS IS SCREENED ACROSS THE UK AND WORLDWIDE FROM THE VAUDEVILLE THEATRE ON DICKENS’ BIRTHDAY – 7 FEBRUARY 2013.
For the first time ever and to celebrate the launch of The Dickens Legacy at the Gala Evening at London’s Vaudeville Theatre, GREAT EXPECTATIONS will be screened live at over 100 cinemas across the UK, followed by screenings across the globe including Europe, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong and America as part of the Audience Access Programme.
Graham Maclaren’s ‘outstanding’ ‘haunting’ and ‘utterly brilliant’ production brings some of the most memorable characters ever created to life. The beautiful, chilling Estella, the terrifying convict Magwitch, the manipulative Jaggers, the tragic and mysterious Miss Havisham, and Pip looking back on his young self – a boy with “great expectations.” This momentous event is the culmination of the international Dickens bicentenary celebrations and follows the play’s highly acclaimed UK tour.
Broadcast live in stunning high definition from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End on its gala opening night, the production will include red carpet and exclusive behind the scenes exclusively for the cinema audience.
The screening will take place on Thursday 7 February across the UK at 18:45.
