Each bit of bad news — Polixenes’ escape, his son’s death — literally knocks him sideways.
Review: The Winter’s Tale, Garrick Theatre Daniel Perks November 8, 2015 Reviews West End 577 views When Kenneth Branagh announced the formation of the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company in April 2015, the West End was understandably buzzing with excitement. The lyric soprano of the title refers to Audrey Mildmay, the wife of Glyndebourne’s founder, John Christie (Roger Allam), and is here played by the immoderately gifted Nancy Carroll.
He has a great moment midway through the play when, horrified, he realizes his own tyranny before redoubling his efforts at self-preservation. This review has been held back until after press night (November 7th), even though it's entirely positive.
We could only get tickets early in the run, they were full price and not marked “preview.” Directed by Kenneth Branagh. But for all the attention surrounding Mr. Branagh at the start of an enterprise that also represents his first Shakespearean role on the London stage in well over a decade, the more galvanic reason for the show’s sold-out status is the presence of Judi Dench. Kenneth Branagh and Rob Ashford codirected. The buttoned-up Victoriana and its family values, from which Leontes laments this “bawdy planet,” neatly flags up the play’s sexual politics. Credit: Johan Persson “Harlequinade” is a kind of proto-“Noises Off,” and the fun is twofold: first, seeing Branagh and company fooling around in such featherweight fare, and second, in lampooning the theater of yesteryear for its naivety and pomp. Playing the jealous Leontes, Mr. Branagh, a five-time Oscar nominee, has cast himself as the Sicilian monarch who journeys from a madness of sorts — the text describes it as “tremor cordis” — through to forgiveness and redemption. The limpid Ms. Carroll, who won an Olivier Award in 2011 for yet another Rattigan play, “After the Dance,” has a casual allure that is essential to a work that might otherwise consist of a lot of men talking operatic shop.

He drops to his knees with word of his wife’s passing, and hobbles off clutching his midriff and moaning, as if gripped by acute appendicitis. Actually, it’s her curtain raiser — a Rattigan monologue, “All On Her Own” — that’s the best of the bunch here.
