Best Seat in Your House

Watch Hamlet live online via our immersive, multi-camera broadcast, Best Seat in Your House, which is designed to give you optimal choice as you watch a live show.

Enjoy the Director's Chair with our Best Seat in Your House player, where you can control multiple live camera streams. Alternatively, choose our Director’s Cut option and sit back as we deliver a more traditional live edit of the show from the theatre to your screen.

Watch the highly-anticipated production of Shakespeare’s great tragedy, with Cush Jumbo (The Good Wife, The Good Fight) making her YV debut as a new kind of Hamlet. Jumbo reunites with her long-time collaborator, director Greg Hersov, to bring us this tale of power, politics and desire.
