It's by no means awful, but I think the dullest thing I've seen at the Donmar. A shame as I had high expectations.
On a side note, the Donmar was 1/6th empty by the looks of it. One row of the side circle was deserted, the stalls had quite a few gaps, my row (row A side circle) had a few seats empty - nice as I had more room! - and there was nobody standing. Who says it's difficult to get tickets to the Donmar?

I haven't seen this but Racine is like orchestral writing for chamber forces, where massive emotions and lifeforces collide with the inevitability of icebergs and the characters make crystal clear exactly how the collision occurs. Alan Hollinghurst is a very meticulous writer so maybe it appears superficially to be a relationship exercise but that's just the medium for the drama..
I recall, I hope with accuracy, the Almeida staging, featuring a glorious singer to intensify our involvement. Dominic Domgroole sniffily dismissed that production as irrelevant on the grounds that it featured vast swirling curtains.

I booked cheaply for Berenice months ago, and after the indifferent response do not feel compelled to show up.

People who used to try and get tickets when it was hard to get tickets and then gave up trying to get tickets and now don't know that these days it is easy to get tickets!
