This is quite fabulous...Maxwell conjures up as much atmosphere by himself as the RSC does with a large cast. Shakespeare fans should be delighted by this pacy and exciting re-imagining. Julius Caesar has never been this much fun.
Playwright Owen McCafferty and director (and hurricane tamer) Russell Bolam have found the perfect performer to deliver this story and the telling. He has mastered the material and the stage...Exhausted? Yes. But what fun.
Unusual, ambitious and very enjoyable...what makes the piece is the choice of storyteller, Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell, upon whose breathless, excitable performance style the show’s success ultimately depends.
