Almeida Theatre Live will give worldwide audiences the opportunity to see plays from the stage at the Almeida’s London home for the first time. Almeida and distributor Picturehouse Entertainment are partnering to broadcast “Richard III,” produced by Illuminations.
The production will be filmed using multiple cameras around the stage and auditorium, with John Wyver as producer. Wyver currently produces the RSC Live from Stratford-Upon-Avon international broadcasts, and with Illuminations he previously worked on filmed versions for the BBC of “Hamlet” with David Tennant and “Macbeth” with Patrick Stewart, which was directed by Goold. For the screen, Goold also directed “Richard II” for the BBC’s “The Hollow Crown” series.
