Had a Shakespeare weekend and saw Two Noble Kinsmen and King Lear on one day. Kinsmen is so-so, but Lear is fantastic theatre. Anthony Sher is magnificent in the lead role. I was lucky enough to see him play Richard III many years ago and this performance is up with that I think. I was calculating that i have seen 28 of the 38 plays written by Shakespeare and was wondering if anyone has done the lot? It cannot be easy as there are quite a few rarely performed!!
