Subject:     “So much for Buckingham”

 

Stirring Richard III’s bones a bit, I was wondering if anyone knows if any productions of Shakespeare’s play these days have revived Colley Cibber’s famous insertion, “Off with his head; so much for Buckingham.”  It’s a delicious corruption.

 

Cheers,

Al Magary
