Helen Mirren, Judi Dench and Benedict Cumberbatch among stars set for Shakespeare anniversary show


With an audience including the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) will bring together acclaimed actors from David Suchet to Dame Judi Dench for a one-night extravaganza of Shakespeare-inspired works spanning genres from hip-hop to opera.
Shakespeare Live! will be hosted by David Tennant at the RSC's theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The latest names to sign up to mark the Bard's death on April 23 include actors John Lithgow, Anthony Sher and Anne-Marie Duff, comedians Tim Minchin and Rufus Hound, and the cast of Horrible Histories, with music from The Shires and the Midlands Youth Jazz Orchestra.
