Ascending to the theatre.

Tonight was "The Comedy of Errors" broadcast from the National Theatre in London with the hilarious Lenny Henry in the lead role of Antipholus of Syracuse. So much fun! Loved the frenetic finger snaps whenever The Syracuse duo became spooked and the Romany minstrels playing Tears for Fears and other great Brit bands between scenes. 

Even though this is an early comedy of William Shakespeare and could be considered "frothy", the director found a way to bring issues forward and create touching moments in the reunion of the family.

A fun night out and I am excited about upcoming shows - including a double  rescreening of Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Johnny Lee Miller swapping the two lead roles on alternate nights.

Enjoy this promotional clip!
