If you’re a Shakespeare fan, you can’t get much better than Sir Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench. Unless those two are appearing on stage at the world famous Garrick Theatre in London. You could spend a few thousand dollars to take a trip across the pond so you can see the two legendary talents live on stage. Of course, you’d also need to spring for theater tickets and hotel accommodations and anything else that may pop up, or you can simply head to your local movie theatre, thanks to Fathom Events.
Fathom Events brings world-class entertainment from all over the world to big screens near you. It’s the only way you can see some of the biggest operas, plays, musicals, comedy acts, concerts and more without actually traveling to see them live. Coming up next, Fathom is bringing one of Shakespeare’s comedic romances to the screen, “The Winter’s Tale,” which will be playing at select theaters for one night only, November 30, 2015.
“The Winter’s Tale” originally dates back to 1623 and has been labeled by some as a comedy, while others call it a romance. No matter what you call it, it’s a brilliant work of art bringing together obsession and redemption complete with some of the biggest stars in the world. It tells the story of King Leontes (Branagh) who appears to have everything he could ever want, however sexual jealousy sets in place a chain of events with truly Shakespearean tragic consequences. Fathom Events is bringing this brilliant work by the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company featuring Sir Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench with co-direction by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh along with Tom Bateman, Jessie Buckley, Hadley Fraser and Miranda Raison. Of course, it’s also taking place at the amazing Garrick Theatre in London, which dates back to 1889.
You can catch this one-night-only event on Monday, November 30 at 7:30 p.m. There are several theaters in the Denver area that will be screening “The Winter’s Tale” including the Pavilions, Bel Mar 16, Westminster Promenade 24 and Highlands Ranch 24, among others. Tickets are $15 and are available online now. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to see two of the most impressive actors of all time take on one of Shakespeare’s most brilliant works. There aren’t many opportunities to see this caliber of entertainment, so act fast, get your tickets early and enjoy a truly legendary performance from London without ever leaving the Mile High City.
