If you’ve been crying yourself to sleep over missing out on Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance of Hamlet in London this coming summer, please don’t fret, because there’s a chance to catch a screening of the production.

The live performance will take place at London’s Barbican Theatre from August 25 through October 31. The show is so popular that tickets are already sold out.

National Theater Live will broadcast a screening of the filmed performance in cinemas internationally on October 15. The tickets will go on sale on March 16 via the NTL website, where you can confirm cinema locations.

The British actor told the Daily Telegraph back in 2012, “It’s a role I’ve been interested in for a long time.”

The wait is almost over.

In the meantime, you can keep an eye out for Cumberbatch at this weekend’s 2015 Academy Awards ceremony, he’s been nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for his performance of Alan Turing in The Imitation Game.
