Agree with your critic's points. A nice touch was that Sam Troughton [who plays Richmond/Henry VII, who kills Richard III] is in real life the eldest son of David Troughton [who plays Henry IV, who has Richard II murdered].
Talk about royal dynasties being played by theatrical dynasties. - USER: Whatsonstage.com

A wonderfully professional production with no weak performance. Aidan McArdle is a pocket dynamo as Richard, projecting a determined and at times charmingly evil persona. The Young Vic's token scheme for people seeing all 4 histories caused seating chaos to those of us whose concentration can only last 3.5 hours. On those seats and in that airless heat, I can only wonder at their stamina. - USER: Whatsonstage.com
