JULIUS CAESAR

"Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
Like a Colossus; and we petty men
Walk under his huge legs, and peep about
To find ourselves dishonourable graves."

This production was full of interest, although it never touched the heights, and suffered from a comparison with A & C next door. It had a wonderful opening with a cast in multi-coloured costumes beating drums and blowing horns [Charles Spencer thought it "more like the opening number of Hair" - and what's to dislike about that?]. The audience on the night I was there loved it - I sat next to a 35-year old gardener who had been to the Ninagawa Titus, his first ever Shakespeare play, and was encouraged by the experience to come and see a Roman play in English. The critics were generally harsh.

Personal Star Rating [Out of Five] **
