While you were eating: The Winter’s Tale starring Judi Dench and Kenneth Branagh


While you were eating, stuffing yourself to the gills with Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie, your friends in the British Isles were flocking to the theatre to see Judi Dench in a live broadcast of Shakespeare’s The Winters Tale, co- starring by Kenneth Branagh who also had a hand in directing.



The play, which began running in the UK in London’s The Garrick Theatre in October, continues through January 16th. The live airing sold over £1.1million in tickets, beating out Mockingjay!

We’re supposedly getting the ‘live’ broadcast here in the US, in movie theaters on November 30th. I can’t find it anywhere, but I hold out hope for the Shakespearian classic to at least hit our TV screens at some point. 

UPDATE: Here’s what it’s playing Fathom Events




Were you lucky enough to see The Winters Tale, either on stage or at the theater. Would love to hear your thoughts!

  1. That would be a treat to see "live" even in a movie theater.

  3. I have nor been fortunate enough to see this but I would most certainly choose it over Mocklingjay any day! Two great actors, I imagine this would be a treat to see in theaters. Especially if I could see it while in London.

    1. Neither have I Tina. I agree with you all the way around. Hoping to get back to London one of these days (weeks, months, years, someday!)
