just opened at the National Theatre in London and, surprise, surprise, it got raves from the critics. Variety. New York Times. The Guardian.
Check them out.
I particularly like this quote from The Guardian:
"Mirren, in short, gives us a real woman poleaxed by passion; and, even if she doesn't supplant the memory of past performances by Glenda Jackson and Diana Rigg, she more than matches them." Matching Jackson and Rigg? That's high praise indeed. And "poleaxed by passion?" there's a turn of phrase that's going to linger.
Public tickets for it's STC run are, naturally, sold out. And the few seats we have remaining for new subscribers
are quickly dwindling (just a handful really). But we also have tickets available for the HD Screenings
. Actually, we've had to add a second screening on July 13 because the screening on June 29 is, of course, sold out. Sheesh. Do yourself a favor, if you want to see Dame Helen, grab tickets whenever you can.Dominic Cooper and Helen Mirren star in the National Theater's production of 'Phedre.'
