As for the play - dull, dull, dull. But completely full despite having only one name in the cast. I had no idea he (or Weimar-era comedy) was such a draw.

Drama schools train their students for all work - theatre, film, broadcasting, etc. It sounds as though the small-space public performances that you've attended are part of the tv and film training where sound would be produced to be recorded and "projection" would be completely inappropriate. Unless the "living room" in Armadillo Towers is a vast baronial hall, of course.

I think Olivia Poulet may also be a draw for some. She was very good in Top Girls. The National Theatre are in a odd predictment-Sher seems to bring the bums on seats and the glorious cash that comes with it but really average/terrible reviews. You can only blame the director/writing so much and if that is the case why is Sher so bad at choosing plays? Especially as he is in the (fortunate?) position of being in a civil partnership with one of Britain's most successful and now powerful Artistic Directors.
He'll be back again at the National, won't he?

It has been the norm for years - during the Trevor Nunn era he miked nearly everything in the Olivier.

An Enemy of the People in Sheffield was one of the best things I have seen in recent years. And Broken Glass was also brilliant. And actors - even someone of his fame - don't have as much control and choice as you think they have.
