Comedy

Shakespeare's energetic comedy is laden with saucy pop culture, rap music, urban vibe: hoodies, trainers, skinny jeans, sunglasses, stilettos, bling and a touch of Jersey Shore. A deliciously convoluted travesty.

A TV production of a magical show
27 February 2011 | by (Edinburgh) – See all my reviews

Seeing this production at Stratford was one of the best theatrical experiences of my life. A superb cast rattle through Shakespeare's early slapstick comedy having a whale of a time, with added songs. Trevor Nunn demonstrates the creative qualities that he goes on to show later in productions such as Cats, Les Miz etc. Unfortunately this is a stage show and they've just pointed the cameras at the stage production, so it doesn't come over anything like as good as the live theatre did. The actors are projecting their speeches to the auditorium and not speaking to the cameras (as would be normal in a made-for-TV drama).
