Julius Caesar

Going back to Stratford to review the RSC Julius Caesar. I try to keep away from other reviews before I’ve seen a show, but enough people have said bad things to send me nervously towards Google. I do hope I’m in for a good night.

On the other hand, this commenter from Whatsonstage – who hates the show – refers to the ‘execrably poor Don Juan‘ (the Kneehigh show not actually of that name – it was called Don John), indicating the inability to tell face from arse in theatre. Don John wasn’t a Christmas show, and a lot of opera buffs did turn up and turn away in horror, but it was bloody fantastic and Kneehigh are a joy.

So perhaps I will enjoy Caesar, after all.
