What's the best Shakespeare performance you've seen?
Peter Brook/Paul Schofield's "King Lear" and Glenda Jackson's "Lear." Schofield was the first time I'd ever seen Lear on stage and it was such an illuminating production, not only with Schofield, but people like Irene Worth and Diana Rigg. I cannot say which was better. Schofield had such a beauty of verse, but Jackson had this over-reacting frailty, and very unusual (but wonderful) readings of the texts.
Did you have any experience with "Timon of Athens" before this project?
