Richard III chronicles the cataclysmic end of England’s greatest power struggle, the Wars of the Roses. Richard is the play’s remarkable, charismatic, and repulsive ringmaster – he takes the audience into his confidence as he plots to kill everyone before him in line for the throne. Being seduced by Richard’s shameless treachery is one of theatre-going’s most delicious guilty pleasures.
We had a great weekend in Staunton, VA, with “As You Like It” and “Richard the III” from @shakespearectr … Amazing versatility from Greg Brostrom as both Touchstone and Richard the III, and a brilliant performance from the whole troupe. Well worth the long trip.
