It is one of my life's ambitions to get to both Stratfords, but my
favorite Falstaff to date (and favorite Iago as well) was the late
Stephen Hemming of the Milwaukee Rep and American Players Theatre in
Wisconsin. He did the role in an APT production of Henry IV, part one,
and was memorable to me for his rascally sweetness, and much-abused
affection for his "sweet wag", Hal.
