Comment:    Re: SHK 20.0285 Current at New Globe and Courtyard

I'd like to respectively disagree with Louis Swilley that the RSC Julius 
Caesar must be avoided. It isn't the best production of the season, but 
there are things to recommend it. The director, Lucy Bailey, was also 
behind last year's Timon at the Globe and a  particularly bloody Titus 
from a few year's back -- the opening wrestling match in her Julius 
shows that she is giving a Titus-style Julius, complete with severed 
heads: not to everyone's taste, but not necessarily bad in itself. 
However, I wouldn't recommend buying the L40 seats.

If anyone is interested, I posted my reactions to Julius Caesar and to 
The Winter's Tale (very good -- definitely see it) on my website, 
stefaniepeters.com.
