The Whatsonstage.com Television channel is a rapidly expanding archive of theatre-related video content. As well as our exclusive first night reports, we regularly add show trailers, event promos, interviews, video diaries, behind-the-scenes footage and some hysterical “best of the web” gems, all handpicked by us.
Here’s a selection of some of our favourite recent additions:
Cat Head Theatre - One of the most bizarre theatre-related videos circulating the web at the moment is ‘Cat Head Theatre’, in which animations of cats are made to speak the words of the bard. Truly odd, but quite amusing and with hits of over 2.5 million (and counting), it seems the people have spoken! >>>Click here to view!
Show Trailer – Filter’s Twelfth Night - Filter theatre company are reviving their acclaimed production of Twelfth Night at the Tricycle theatre this month, and here provide a preview of what audiences can expect from their reworking of Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identity. >>>Click here to view!
David Tennant Does Hamlet (Sort of) - Occasionally a home-edited clip deserves plaudits for sheer inventiveness, and this is certainly one of them. Clicking on the link in expectation of some choice clips of the great Scot delivering some of the Bard’s most famous lines, I was greeted by a somewhat alternative version. Say what you like, you have to admire the guy’s dedication – he must’ve been trawling the Doctor Who archives for hours! >>>Click here to view!
