A few links to help celebrate #lovetheatreday

It is #lovetheatreday  which is a surprise to me because I honestly thought that was every day.  Maybe that’s just my preference showing?  So here are some links to some interesting interviews, videos, and a list of the San Diego theatres so you  can fall more in love with this thing we call theatre.

Ben Kingsley
                   Sir Ben Kingsley

As an ardent anglophile, the first up is a link to an interview as Sue MacGregor brings together some of the original members of the National Theatre to talk about its creation in 1963 under artistic director Laurence Olivier. The people gathered to discuss include Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Joan Plowright , Sir Derek Jacobi, and Sir Michael Gambon.

If these names don’t immediately make them spring to mind then this may help. AKA: Professor McGonagall, Nanny from 101 Dalmations, The King from Cinderella, and Albus Dumbledore  (the second) from Harry Potter.

You know them from something, I promise.

The Old Vic Theatre in London  ( I told you I was an anglophile)  made a video of the responses from the audience and their staff about why they love theatre.  This shows some of the ways theatre can make a difference
