I learn from the RSC's online schedule that their Hamlet (starring Alex
Jennings) is still on show in London. I've already seen this productions
four times and wouldn't mind a fifth one. Don't miss it!

Comment:        SHK 8.1232  Q: Current London Productions

Sorry for answering on list, but this may be of interest to others.
Check your home mail box.  Any day (today?) you will receive a Sunday
Times (London) review of the RNT's Othello and the Stratford Henry V.
Both are much lauded, esp. Othello.  If you trust this review, this the
Shakespeare to see in London.

Merry Wives has not been well received.  Apparently Terry Hands magic
with that play did not strike a third time.

I have a couple of copies of Plays International I have not yet read.

I'll skim them for Shakespeare in London reviews and let you know.

All the best,
mj
