Rsc 2013 Season
Posted 02 October 2012 - 11:08 PM
By the way I discovered today that they farm out some tix to Ticketmaster which is all very well except that they give TM some of the best seats. I wanted particular seats for As You Like It on a Monday in June - well in advance and not the most popular day - and lo and behold they were not available as given to TM. They were the two dinky seats on the corner in the stalls which I discovered recently were crackers, raised, brilliant view and quite close without being in the actors' faces.

Before him, Edward Bennett.
Who replaced David Tennant.
Toby (puke) Stephens was nearly ten years ago.

Quick Shakespeare lesson for ya - a "score" is 20, so "four score and upwards" translates to modern English as "more than eighty years"
However, a young Lear could work arguably well - but why anyone aged 40ish would say "here kids, I want to retire, have my kingdom" without realising teenage feuds are worse than those in supposed adult life is something I'd have to ponder for a bit!
Bertram is due to be played by Alex Waldmann, according to an inside RSC source
If true, I'm glad he's sticking with the RSC, has had a very good season with them this time out.

I assume Lynette was referring to the main house. Tennant's Hamlet played in The Courtyard.

Four score = eighty. Not sure that the age of Titus is specified, he has a youngish daughter so 40 would be OK I think.
£42 a shot for decent Swan tickets I see - seems very expensive.

Yes, you're quoting the Saturday night price. The other seven performances each week are £34 top price, or £22 during previews.

Saturday matinees are at that high price too.
