Looking at an updated 2013 brochure on the website Greg Hicks is also in Alls Well That End's Well.

Patrick Stewart also played both brothers in the 2008 production
My reviews can also be found at "A Night at the Theatre"

Greg Hicks is a super actor in classical roles. I haven't seen him in a movie or on the telly. What has he done?

Virtually nothing - that's why I thought his announcement about doing more film work seemed somewhat hopeful. The parts for him this season seem small, of course he'd be excellent as Titus Andronicus but I don't know if that fits with Hamlet/All's Well (what is he in that ? King of France ?)

The performance schedule shows that no cross-casting is possible between the RST and the Swan this summer. Each theatre has its own acting company for its own repertory of three plays.

Jonathan Slinger is Parolles, which should be a nice follow-on from his Malvolio http://www.curtisbro...slinger//works/

Greg Hicks is the King of France http://www.curtisbro...g-hicks//works/

Except look who the director is - not one of your favourites.

O no, she of the Romeo and Juliet sticks! I think she did something more recently that was bearable. Can't recall. Oh well, maybe she will be overawed by her talented cast and let them get on with it. As if.

Meckler did the awful Onassis in the West End fairly recently, as well as a Dream at the RSC last year... that got reviews ranging from 1* to 5*.

She will always get some 5* no matter how terrible her productions are, a certain section of the theatrical elite (Michael Boyd included) idolise her for her work with Shared Experience.

Looking back I see that I thought Meckler is to direct Hamlet but breathe again, it is David Farr. Should I still be worried? No great expectations of All's Well now but I think I've booked it. As long as she keeps away from Hamlet. That one in the asylum ( Young Vic) was odd enough for me.
