Can't afford to make every production at the Pantages in Hollywood? Me neither. I also very much wish I could fly over to London to see every single production that goes up, especially when it involves the work of Benedict Cumberbatch. Well, thanks to my fast friend Playbill.com, we know all the upcoming live broadcasts of plays and musicals that will be screened in cinemas nationwide.

I admit to being most excited to see my favorite actors in action: Kenneth Branaugh's The Entertainer, Benedict Cumberbatch's Hamlet, and Gemma Arterton's Saint Joan are only a few that I can't wait to see. Also in London, Cumberbatch will be appearing in Frankenstein at the National Theatre alongside Jonny Lee Miller; and don't forget our favorite duo Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen in No Man's Land at Wyndham's Theatre. In the U.S., the biggest broadcast will be Newsies from the Pantages in Los Angeles; it has no set date, but is definitely confirmed for 2017.
