Ken Tynan | Mr. Kenneth Tynan
Did You Know?
There has never been an actor of greater gusto than Donald Wolfit
. He has the dynamism, energy, bulk and stature, and he joins these together with a sheer relish for resonant words, which splits small theatres as [Enrico Caruso
] wine glasses.
Co-director (with Laurence Olivier
) of the National Theatre of Great Britain. It was Tynan who said that he would only accept the post if Olivier played Othello in Shakespeare's "Othello", something that Olivier had always resisted doing (he had played Iago on stage opposite Ralph Richardson
as Othello in the 1930s).
