Watch the Final Performance of Howard Brenton’s ‘Drawing the Line’ Free Online Today

Drawing the Line by Howard Brenton at the Hampstead theatreOne major criticism of theater is that many find it inaccessible, either because of its content, location or ticket price. Heck, we just reported that the average price for a ticket to see a musical on Broadway is $102.45!

Because of that, one might assume that you have a slim chance to see Howard Brenton’s newest play, Drawing the Line, because it is closing tonight after a critically acclaimed run of sellout performances at Hampstead Theatre. However, Drawing the Line is making those who think theater is inaccessible eat their words: tonight’s final performance will be streamed live online for free by The Guardian at 7:30 PM GMT (2:30 PM EST, 11:30 PST).

Got Saturday plans? The performance will remain on demand at The Guardian‘s website for 72 hours, and Brenton will follow that with a webchat on The Guardian‘s website on Tuesday, January 14. In the announcement, The Guardian suggests that this will be the first of several such broadcasts. That sounds like quite the gift for theater lovers that can’t get to the performance. Could this be a major part of the future of theater?
