Waiting for Lyra: His Dark Materials Stage Production

With the movie just about out some may be interested in seeing some of what went into the National Theater’s stage version. In that case here is a marvelous website all about it. In particular there are many videos of the rehearsals, Philip Pullman reading sections from the books, and some videos of the finished production too. This is from the original production which I saw. It starred Anna Maxwell Martin as Lyra (and whenever I see her as someone else now, say Esther in Bleak House, I still think “Lyra”), Dominic Cooper as Will (yep, he was indeed Dakin in The History Boys), and Timothy Dalton as Asriel among others.
