A nice little improvised touch on the night I saw it: as he got to the line "All the world to nothing!" in Act I, he walked slowly across the stage, reached out and caught a little dandelion seed that had been slowly drifting over the audience, and stood contemplating it for a second. He got a big round of applause for that.
The cross-dressing worked well, I thought. It seemed to highlight the strangeness of this exceptionally disfunctional family.
I didn't like: Roger Lloyd Pack urging the audience to cheer and shout "Long live King Richard!", like he was back in panto.
