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
