This surely is the greatest Dream since Peter Brook’s landmark 1970 production.
Might be the finest Globe Dream
A theatrical arcady on our doorstep
Stoppard looks at society’s phantom limb ethic. Even when it’s gone it aches, and it aches to have someone opting out.
Heartwarming, giddyingly vital yet clear with its own truth.
A thoroughly enjoyable period-style musical.
Join and revel – they’re not anywhere near ended.
A blissfully alive production.
