|Ralph Fiennes plays Jack Tanner |
in this exhilarating reinvention of
Shaw’s witty, provocative classic.
I checked out the link and was mesmirized watching the actors talk about why the dream sequence was kept into the play, when it could have been eliminated.
I only read the play early in the 1960's. Some couples got together. All of our husbands were in English, and for an evening's entertainment, we had copies of the play and read it.
I am pretty sure Thursday's broadcast will beat our readings. Heck. We didn't even have costuming.
PS I did some homework on the reviews. Try these three below. Just when I think I am too tired to go, I read the reviews again and know I can't miss this.
