See Tom Hiddleston in CORIOLANUS at The James Bridges Theater

Coriolanus HiddlestonNational Theatre Live will broadcast the Donmar Warehouse production of Coriolanus, Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, February 8 & 9 at UCLA’s James Bridges Theater.

When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. Famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.

Coriolanus is directed by Donmar Warehouse artistic director Josie Rourke and stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse) in the title role and Mark Gatiss (BBC’s Sherlock) as Menenius. The stage production is filmed live and broadcast by National Theatre Live and presented by L.A. Theatre Works and The James Bridges Theater.

“A scorching Tom Hiddleston leads Josie Rourke’s tense, revelatory staging.” — Variety
