39 / Theatre Review

London is a great place for theater. In our five days here, Marilyn has seen Twelfth Night, by the Royal Shakespeare Company (to which she did not give a great review) and we together have seen:

Every Good Boy Deserves Favour
The extremely popular War Horse
The Thirty-Nine Steps
Six Degrees of Separation at the Old Vic
The Misanthrope, with Kiera Knightley
Becket's Waiting For Godot with Ian McKellen
These plays were "all good," but the performance of Waiting For Godot was the best I've ever seen and the new version of The Misanthrope, by Moliere by way of contemporary author Martin Crimp, was spectacular. Speaking of spectacular, War Horse is the probably the most spectacular puppet show you'll ever see, if you favor puppet shows!
