King Lear @ Almeida Theatre…

Last night Stuart and I went to see King Lear at the Almeida Theatre in London’s glitzy Islington.   

Wow! Just wow! Stunning.   

Danny Sapani is a triumph as Lear.   Moving, funny, outrageous, infuriating - he deserves every award going.   

The three sisters Aliya Henry, Faith Omole, and Gloria Obianyo are sensational.  

The three and half hours flew by.   

Yaël Farber‘s direction is exceptional.   

The reviews were right (but missed a star!)  
★★★★ “One of the best Shakespeares I’ve ever seen” The Times 
★★★★ “A gripping piece of entertainment” Time Out
