Can’t afford to jet off to London to fulfill your Shakespearean fix? Yeah, neither can the rest of us. But thanks to the glory of technology, you and friends from more than 22 countries can gather in one of 300 theaters worldwide to witness English people perform Hamlet as National Theatre Live broadcasts the production from London via high-definition satellite. Shot in an up-close, handheld style, this cinema-theater experience will have you feeling like you’re really there in jolly old England—minus the uncomfortable airport-security groping and the unfortunate smell of chavs and WAGs.
