SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, July 21, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The Hammer Theatre Center in San Jose, CA Presents
National Theatre Live Screenings of “GOOD”;
Thursday, September 21, 2023 at 6:00pm
and Sunday, September 15, through Sunday, September 17, 2023.
Serving Silicon Valley, and located in the heart of downtown San Jose, CA, the Hammer Theatre Center invites audiences to a screening of the National Theatre’s “GOOD” captured live from London’s West End and screened exclusively in the south Bay Area for two days only in September.
David Tennant (“Doctor Who”) appears in a blistering return to the West End in one of Britain’s most powerful political plays, as an ordinary man who is swept into the Nazi regime. As John Halder, a good, intelligent German professor, he finds himself pulled into a movement with unthinkable consequences. The cast also features Elliot Levey (“Coriolanus”, “Peaky Blinders”) and Sharon Small (“The Bay”).
“Has the power to chill you to the bone” (Time Out)
“Fascinating and appalling. Tennant is magnificent.” (The Guardian)
This experience is for fans, not just of David Tennant and “Doctor Who”, but also of blockbuster theatre and politically-charged cinema such as “Prima Facie” and “Leopoldstadt”. Film buffs who enjoy Ken Loach films, as well as films such as “Schindler’s List”, “Life is
Beautiful” and “The Hurt Locker” may also appreciate “GOOD “.
This National Theatre Live (NT Live) screening of “GOOD” will be presented at 7:00pm, Thursday, September 21 and 2:00pm, Sunday, September 24, 2023.
All shows are at the Hammer Theatre Center, 101 Paseo De San Antonio, San Jose. Tickets on sale now ($20; community, student and senior discounts available.) For more information, the public may visit hammertheatre.com or call (408) 924-8501.
Launched by the British National Theatre, NT Live is the theatre’s groundbreaking initiative to broadcast world-class theatre to movie screens. Each broadcast was filmed in front of a live audience in London, with cameras carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that viewers get the “best seat in the house” view of each production.
