Well, a couple of years back, Stacey Keach starred in the Folger Shakespeare
Theater's production of Richard III. It met with mixed reviews here in DC.
 
If you want a more specific review, I could find some for you.

In response to Phyllis Rackin's inquiry about productions of *Richard III*,
Anthony Sher played the title memorably in the mid-80s for the RSC and
wrote about it equally memorably in *The Year of the King*.  The RSC cur-
rently has another production at Stratford with Simon (can't remember his
last name) playing Richard.  It was reviewed in the Sunday NYT within the
last couple of weeks.  Ian McKellan played Richard in another stuning pro-
duction that I think originated in the National Theatre in London but also
came to New York for a while last summer.  Doubtless the main North American
Shakespeare festivals have staged *Richard III* as well, within the last
few years.  Others will know about that better than I.
 
Cheers.

There is currently a production of Richard III that began at Stratford and is
now going on tour:  Tokyo, US., European countries.

For the past two years, I have compiled the list of Shakespeare Summer
Festivals for *The Shakespeare Newsletter*.  A review of my files reveals that
*Richard III* was staged in 1991 at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, the
Georgia Shakespeare Festival, and the Oak Park Shakespeare Festival, while in
1992 R3 was preformed at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival.  The Shakespeare
Summer Festivals list has been a feature of *The Shakespeare Newsletter* since
its inception forty years ago.  The lists appear in the Spring and Summer
issues.
 
During the past fifteen years, I have seen three productions in the Washington,
D.C. area.  In 1978 Paul Collins played Richard at the Folger Theatre (reviewed
SQ, 30: 196), in 1990 with Stacy Keach at the Folger (SQ, 42: 473-476), and
this past summer with Ian McKellen at the Kennedy Center.  While the R3 with
McKellen was stunning, I preferred Keach's romp through the play.
