In Camera – audience response
Three Kings with Andrew Scott was outstanding. The different emotions he showed in a 1 hour monologue was phenomenal. I love being part of these digital audiences with @oldvictheatre. I cannot wait for the next #OVinCamera! #OVThreeKings #OVFaithHealer pic.twitter.com/KP0wgvBaXI

We did!!!! Totally captivating!
We live in Glasgow and #OVInCamera has given us a fantastic opportunity to see a production we may never normally have seen live so thank you ☺️

That’s how you do live cinema at home: with wine, a pile of food and on the big screen. I love that there’s actually a curtain call #OVFaithHealer #OVInCamera @oldvictheatre pic.twitter.com/GyZYISPB2q

If anyone is sceptical about the possibility of live broadcasting Theatre by Zoom, it *absolutely* works. The Arts are vital because they show us who we are and without that, we are lost. Live theatre takes that to a visceral level, even via laptop. #SaveTheArts #OVInCamera

The previous two #OVInCamera have been stunning. Breathtaking theatre. Missing the in-person live experience immensely, but these @oldvictheatre performances are truly inspirational & unmissable.
Can’t wait for tonight’s show! https://t.co/jAeYNxsA3U

#OVInCamera #OVFaithHealer another terrific livestream from @oldvictheatre Brilliant performances all round. The intimacy of a monologue really draws you into the screen, so you can almost feel like you’re there. But God, I can’t wait until we can return for real. ❤️🎭

Texas, USA! #OVInCamera plays have been my only live theatre experience and you all have really been so amazing. Thank you. I look forward to the day when I can travel to your theatre and see a play in person.

It’s nights like these that reinforce how much I love theatre. I’m so heartsick to sit in my seat and wait for the curtain to rise. To be in a room with other people in a shared experience. @oldvictheatre performances are so close to the real thing. I can’t wait to get back 💔😭

Despite being highly sceptical of watching theatre on any kind of screen, I am delighted to report that @oldvictheatre’s In Camera series has served up a real treat with Faith Healer. Riveting performances from @michaelsheen @indyv9 @DaveThrelfallUK. Pure oxygen. Thank you.

Faith Healer @oldvictheatre was a masterclass in doing livestreamed theatre with craft and flare, without making the show /about/ the livestream.
A captivating pleasure to watch 👌

Oh my goodness that was FANTASTIC! @michaelsheen @indyv9 @oldvictheatre Just so entrancing and captivating. Thank you so much. I stood in front of my computer and applauded and got a bit tearful. Absolutely incredible. #OVFaithHealer 👏👏👏👏👏💐💐💐💐💐
