Theatre News — Sunday, 5 June 2011

  • Reviews are in for the Tennant/Tate Much AdoWhat’s On Stage gives us a Review Round-up which has near-unanimous praise for Tennant’s Benedick, but is a bit more mixed for Tate’s Beatrice, and the choices made by director Josie Rourke.
  • Baz Lurhmann is directing a stage musical version of Strictly Ballroom; it will open in Sydney in 2013.  (Courtesy Playbill Online.)
  • More good British Theatre on screen in the States!  Fathom Events brings us Merry Wives of Windsor, Henry IV (Parts One and Two), and Henry VIII — filmed at London’s Globe last year.  Dates begin 27 June.
