On Sunday afternoon, I went to the Phoenix Art Museum to see a filmed production of the play "Straight Line Crazy" starring Ralph Fiennes. Every year, the museum has showings of different National Theatre productions that are filmed by National Theatre Live.
The play was written by David Hare and it tells the story of Robert Moses who spent 40 years creating roads, parks and beaches in and around New York City. However, he was a bit of a tyrant which makes for an interesting character for Fiennes to play. The play was fascinating and actors were brilliant. I had never heard of Robert Moses before but the next time I'm in New York and riding on one of the expressways, I'll certainly think of him.
National Theatre Live makes it possible to see wonderful London theatre productions without leaving home.
