Ethel M. Barber Theatre
30 Arts Circle Drive
on the Evanston Campus of Northwestern University

Located on the southeast part of the Evanston Campus, just off Sheridan Road and Campus Drive. The Barber Theatre is at the top of the hill facing the lake, right next to the Block Museum, in the Arts Circle.

National Theatre Live is the National Theatre's groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theatre live (or for US venues, delayed) from the London stage to cinemas and theaters across the UK and around the world.

Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo play Shakespeare’s famous fated couple in his great tragedy of politics, passion and power. Caesar and his assassins are dead. General Mark Antony now rules alongside his fellow defenders of Rome. But at the fringes of a war-torn empire the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war. Director Simon Godwin returns to National Theatre Live screens with this hotly anticipated production, following previous broadcasts of Twelfth Night, Man and Superman and The Beaux’ Stratagem.

National Theatre Live is supported using public funding by Arts Council England and is proudly supported by SkyArts. The Wirtz Center's Stage on Screen broadcasts are sponsored by a generous grant from The Alumnae of Northwestern University.
