National Theatre Live: The Magistrate
3200 Darnell Street , Fort Worth, TX
$10 - $18
Distributed internationally by BY Experience, National Theatre Live is an initiative to broadcast live performances from the National Theatre’s stages to cinemas worldwide. In Fort Worth, the screenings are presented exclusively at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, courtesy of Amphibian Stage Productions.
National Theatre Live’s fourth season continues with The Magistrate by Arthur Wing Pinero. Academy Award nominee and Tony Award-winner John Lithgow (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Shrek, 3rd Rock from the Sun) takes the title role in this uproarious Victorian farce, directed by Olivier Award-winner Timothy Sheader (Crazy for You and Into the Woods, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, London).
With his louche air and a developed taste for smoking, gambling, alcohol, and women, it's hard to believe Cis Farringdon is only 14. And that's because he isn't. Agatha, his mother, dropped five years from her true age – and his – when she married amiable magistrate Posket. When her deception looks set to be revealed, it sparks a series of hilarious indignities and outrageous mishaps.
