National Theatre Live in partnership with The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

National Theatre Live is the National Theatre of Great Britain's initiative to broadcast live performances from the National's stages to cinemas worldwide. NTL has allowed us to see the legendary Kenneth Branagh as Macbeth, bask in the glory of Hollywood favorite Benedict Cumberbatch in Frankenstein, and discover the amazing adaptation of the novel The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time. Plus, we love any excuse to hang out at The Modern after hours. 

National Theatre Live at The Modern is presented by the Jill and Charles Fischer Foundation
