"Gambon takes 'role he was born to play' as glorious clown Falstaff
By Louise Jury, Arts Correspondent
Published : 05 May 2005
Sir Michael Gambon is making his long-awaited theatrical debut as Sir
John Falstaff, Shakespeare's most glorious clown and
wit....London's theatre critics have
been keenly anticipating the application of Gambon's undisputed talent
to the role of Prince Hal's disreputable sidekick in Henry IV."
hHardly "undisputed," given the tepid reception of his Antony and Lear.
