Didn't like the play before, but...
11 January 2018 | by bob998See all my reviews

This is a very appealing production of one of Shakespeare's most famous plays that should get wide attention. I can't remember Reinhardt's version from 1935, except for a bit of Mickey Rooney's part, and the BBC production from 1981 left me pretty cold, with only Helen Mirren making an impression, so this one will be my go-to version for the future. It is the most Elizabethan of all versions by far; you only have to see the choreography and hear Claire von Kampen's music to be transported back to the 1590's. The cast is good, John Light ably doubles as Theseus and Oberon, and Michelle Terry impressed me as Hippolyta and Titania. At almost three hours, this is the most complete version you are ever likely to see.
