Just. Great. It would be a bear to stage, but I’d love to be a part of that process. Anything that manages to capture both the camp fun of the film it is based on and the Jacobean/Grand Guignol bloody horror of some of Shakespeare’s greatest murder scenes while making you feel more than a mere exercise in genre storytelling... ... can’t be all bad, can it?😉
Oh, this was super fun! I would love to see it on stage.
Similar to the film, but it departs in some fun little ways.
i enjoyed this, but found it to be lacking in several areas, as are many plays adapted from another source. while i'm sure the original production was quite an experience, this would be difficult to produce and cast, and like much that is based on 'old school' acting, is probably easier to appreciate by viewing onstage than by reading. read and enjoy - it's good, but the 1973 film, in all its campiness and over-the-top theatricality, is better.
