5.0 out of 5 stars Great Productions!, 26 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kings And Rogues Box Set (Henry IV/ VIII/ Merry Wives) [Globe on Screen] [DVD] [2012] [NTSC] (DVD)
I bought this as a gift and it was greatly appreciated. The plays produced by the Globe Theatre are amazing to watch live and these DVD's capture the performances really well. I had bought individual DVD's as presents in the past, but when I saw a box set I was really pleased - and the price seemed good as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars interesting, 25 July 2013

This review is from: Kings And Rogues Box Set (Henry IV/ VIII/ Merry Wives) [Globe on Screen] [DVD] [2012] [NTSC] (DVD)
... to see the globe theatre .. .. enjoyed watching 'merry wives of windsor' and looking forward to watching the other three dvds.... i calculated this was good value for money(though maybe other box set, containing R and Juilet, is more expensive than buying the dvds singularly-at this moment in time) and is nice to watch these plays... ... ... no less entertaining than the more sought after Romeo and Juilet/Hamlet/Othello/Tempest - certainly more difficult to obtain.. i also have the shakespeare box set dvd issued by the BBC(heavier, more serious performances, even of 'merry wives of windsor') ... so, i suppose, shakespeare is 'one of my things' .. but would urge newcomers to watch these ... ... i have never been in the globe theatre but felt that i did not miss any of the 'action' although, i must agree with many others, screen productions can never match the live performances in situ-go see live theatre... that's wen one 'gets hooked'

5.0 out of 5 stars Great productions recorded for posterity., 16 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Kings And Rogues Box Set (Henry IV/ VIII/ Merry Wives) [Globe on Screen] [DVD] [2012] [NTSC] (DVD)
As a regular at Shakespeare's Globe I had seen all these but the design of the theatre, based as near as possible on the original, means that there are incidents that you miss. With the action on three sides, pillars and other distractions this cannot be helped. With these DVDs you see everything and in closeup.
It is a great joy to have these performances on record especially Roger Allam's Falstaff . He is not afraid to show the character's sheer nastyness and his comic timing is perfect. Jamie Parker's Prince Hal is the best I have seen in many a long year.His explanatory speech at the begining of Part ! sets the tone superbly.I hope to see both of them back at the Globe before too long.
Henry VIII is not often performed thesre days but this production proves what a good play it is. Dominic Rowan as Henry captured the capricious nature of the king. All jolly one minute and vicious when someone opposes him. Kate Duchene was dignified as Queen Catherine I could go on but will just finish by saying"if you are unsure about Shakespeare buy these.

An absolutely great addition to any Shakespeare collection. The cast are brilliant and the atmosphere of the Globe makes this an experience to savour.
