Critic's Notebook: Chiwetel Ejiofor leads cast of 'Everyman' broadcast

?
? Actor Chiwetel Ejiofor is probably most familiar to American audiences for his film roles including his Oscar-nominated performance as Solomon Northup in 2013's 12 Years a Slave. But Ejiofor is also a hugely accomplished stage actor in his home country of England. Atlanta audiences can easily catch a glimpse of this side of Ejiofor when the National Theatre of Great Britain does a cinema broadcast of its current production Everyman, at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema. ?

? Everyman, you may recall from English Lit class (you may choose not to), is a 15th-century morality play about a man who tries to escape from death; it's long been considered one of the foundational cornerstones of English drama. The inventive-looking National Theatre production includes words by British Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and movement by choreographer Javier De Frutos.

? National Theatre Live: Everyman. $15. 11 a.m. Sun., Aug. 2. Landmark Midtown Art Cinema, 931 Monroe Dr. N.E. 404-879-0160. landmarktheatres.com.?
