Just a note for regulars that there will be a few backdated reviews appearing over the next few days, so do keep an eye out for reviews of the National’s All’s Well, The Old Vic’s Winter’s Tale, the Globe’s As You Like It and the RSC’s Caesar appearing retrospectively. Very busy week for theatregoing and conferences, hence only managing to get them written up now.
On another note, I’ve hit a bit of a landmark in finally seeing a professional production of All’s Well, which was the last canonical play I hadn’t seen put on professionally. That’s one more Shakespearean box ticked off. Here’s a few more, most of which I hope to see in the next few years:
- An English-language Titus Andronicus (the Globe’s was in Complete Works year, when I had no time to see anything not in Stratford!)
- An off-book production of Two Noble Kinsmen (I’ve only seen a very good rehearsed reading)
- A good Measure for Measure (I’ve only seen the Theatre Royal Bath production, which was horrible)
- Edward III, though I may be waiting a little while for this….
