It's called living in a one bedroom flat in London. Although goodness knows where Handy, the servant, is supposed to sleep.
I agree pretty much with the general consensus on here. Well acted by many people, especially Rory Kinnear, but there's something I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe it's Restoration Comedy in general. The post-Cromwell unpouring that Madhav Sharma spoke of.
Many thanks to the WOSers for arranging the Q&A, though.
But to find a mother younger than her son is very curious,
And that's the kind of mother that is usually spurious.

Maybe he's been on Big Brother.
I can see it now: Much Ado set in the Big Brother house. The gulling scene in the garden. Monologues in the Diary Room. Hero taken to the secret house next door when they thinks she's dead.

Tom Hardy who ive recently discovered as an actor having seen him in Scenes of a Sexual Nature (great film by the way - recommend it) is perfectly cast as Doriment. His posturing, posing, and facial expressions are spot on, plus he is a very handsome guy and looks great in a suit, which for this role is important (he also looks great topless, which is also kinda important for the role it seems! lol) He has tremendous stage presense and is very watchable. an actor to watch for the future, also interestingly for me (being short myself! lol) he wasnt that tall!
The rest of the cast were also faultless, with Rory Kinnear almost stealing the show with his brilliant Sir Fopling Flutter. All the women in it held their own as well, it really was a great ensemble piece.
The cheoreography during the scene changes (especially in act 1) was great, as was the dancing in act 2. Basically I just loved every minute of this production. There were ALOT of older audience members (and Alan Rickman!!)and listening to them they didnt seem that taken with it to start with, but I think a younger audience would really like it.
It closes this Thursday so I really recommend catching it before it does.
