A friend sent me this link, so if you have any interest in possibly seeing the National Theatre's production of All's Well That Ends Well in a movie theater in October, check to see if it's playing anywhere near you:

Man, I wish more plays were filmed! Stage plays don't always translate to film so well. And I know that immediacy and ephemera are part of the experience of the theater. But how often is one going to get to see plays in London or New York, you know? (NOT NEARLY AS OFTEN AS ONE WOULD LIKE!!!)

Exactly! It might not be ideal, but it's something for the rest of us.

(Though I suppose I can't complain *too* much in that regard, since the RSC is filming/has filmed David Tennant's Hamlet. And I promised I would be a good little girl--at least for a while--if they did that.)

OMG, do you think there's any chance of a DVD release?

I certainly hope so! It would be really useful--and then maybe more people would teach All's Well, since they'd have a recent production to use in class and direct their students to.

Oh, that's too bad. Still, at least you did get to see it once!

It's showing at my local cinema so I'm hoping to get tickets!
