Shakespeare done Right
21 January 2013 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a capture of the play done by the immortal Stratford Shakespeare festival group. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation filmed each year's performances and ran them on TV, for many successive years. This one is in the Festival Theatre, which is barely large enough for the large cast and many scene-changes. In fact, the lights going down while the Jawas move furniture and sets, creates a second 'story' to watch. Done very cleverly, and with just enough levity and charm to carry through the paper-thin plot. It's quite a workout for the lead actors, and some of the lines end up shouted-out breathlessly rather than with proper control, but this also adds to the audience involvement.
