Close your eyes and imagine a live performance of your favourite movie or series. Electrifying, right? I bet that is how the audience of the stage play of the biggest Netflix series, ‘Stranger Things: The First Shadow’ felt.

Right at the West End Theatre in London, the cast of Netflix’s 1980s-set sci-fi series thrilled their spectators with the best theatre performance ever witnessed.

The TV show produced by Matt and Ross Duffer, has spanned 4 seasons and forging to enter its fifth and final season. It was delayed this year because of the Hollywood strikes involving actors and writers.

The theatre performance of this supernatural events-themed series unfolded before the eyes of the London audience on  Thursday night.

During a time for comments at West Theatre, one of the producers of the series, Matt Duffer said “It sheds a lot of light on both the back story of all our characters and also starts to give some hints on where we are heading into the final season of the show.”

“Stranger Things” premiered in 2016 on Netflix to become the streaming company’s most-viewed English-speaking series. It tells the story of a group of students who had to battle supernatural events in the made-up town of Hawkins.

Netflix has also okayed an animated spinoff of the series as it looks forward to the TV show becoming a long-running franchise.
