THE NATIONAL THEATRE GOES INTERNATIONAL

AKA’s Marketing and Promotions department has recently joined with our Digital department to help promote NT Live to audiences across the United States. To begin supporting the fall season of screenings, including A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, SKYLIGHT, FRANKENSTEIN and OF MICE AND MEN, MAP has secured partnerships with BBC America, The British Consulate, Broadway Boosters and more!

 

The partnership between NT Live and BBC America launched with an hour-long Twitter discussion moderated by BBC America’s blog, “Mind the Gap, ” about British theater making the transition to America. The conversation also featured Tim Levy of the National Theatre, Simon Stephens, playwright of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME, and NT Live’s producer, Emma Keith, who answered questions regarding the screenings and how they make British theatre more accessible to the United States.

 

Stay tuned!  This Mind the Gap Twitter conversation is just the beginning of an exciting partnership between AKA NYC, BBC America and NT Live.
