Because of Rylance's family tragedy? He was keen to do the Globe run so I'm not sure why he'd pull out of the Apollo one and, given ticket sales, that would disappoint a lot of people.
Looks like good reviews so far for this (apart from Letts who often goes off on his own), four star ones from Guardian, Telegraph and Standard. Anyone seen the Times one? Do the Independent care about theatre reviews any more or do they just not put them online very often?

They always play it for laughs to some extent, I'd like to see a production of it where they don't.

I agree you can overplay it - but I think a R3 without any comedy would be a very dull experience. Just as a Hamlet would be wrong if you didn't laugh in certain places.
The worst example of getting inappropriate laughs was in an Othello that the RSC toured a few years ago which managed (inadvertently, I hope) to get a laugh at the death of Desdemona - which really did puncture the mood.
