Comment: Re: SHK 15.1311 Measured Response
Didn't get the earlier debate here but I've just seen the Measure at the
National in London and it wasn't the worse I've seen. I did my MA thesis
on the role of Isabella (page and stage) many years ago and from stage
history I could glean, it seems it's always been a 'difficult'
(problem?!) play. The one with Josette Simon as Isabella at the RSC, I
think, was probably the best I've seen.
