blanche -> Shakespeare Retold (8/11/2005 10:04:41 AM)

Anyone else catch this last night? I'm normally highly dubious about attempts to 'update' or 'jazz up' the classics, but I thought that this worked brilliantly. Damian Lewis was a revelation, and Billie reinforced her acting credentials. The script was very sharp and witty, and honoured the 'verbal jousting' of the original.

What really hit me about it was quite how dramatically juxtaposed the comedy and tragedy is in Shakespeare. The reworking served to really highlight this.

I can't wait to see the others now! [sm=happy34.gif]
