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