Thanks for the info on the Anthony Sher characterization.  Do you know
if this 1984 production is available anywhere on video?  All I'm seeing
in the usual online markets is an animated version with Sher's voice.

The crutch thing was initiated or at least used to great effect by
Antony Sher at the RSC in the early 80s.

But I suppose a truly original idea in Shakespearean production is hard
to come by.

I was passing through Ashland on my way to Seattle on a day when no
Shakespeare was playing!  But I did have the good fortune to see "Napoli
Millionaria", which was very well-acted but oddly difficult to
describe...lots of very funny moments but not a comedy; yet not tragic.
  A drama of moral choices and ironic circumstances set in Naples in
World War II.  I'm sorry to have missed the RIII, this production sounds
intriguing.

Stacey Keach was a marvelous Richard at the Folger Shakespeare Theatre
before the company moved to the Lansburgh and was renamed The
Shakespeare Theatre.

Keach wore a leg brace and had crutches. The performance was stunning
for the infectious sense of fun Keach imbued the character with.

I will never forget it.
