I agree the Almeida should get exciting again.
Most of those were Grandage era things. I think it is probably fair to say that under Rourke the Peter Gill evening, the Dürrenmatt, the Friel (Philadelphia), the Racine and Trelawney have not had the buzz that Mendes and Grandage had from the start (and of that only the Racine and the Friel had the potential to be classic Donmar fare).
But it is early days. Remember Kevin Spacey's first year or so at the Old Vic? I think the Macphersons have the potential to be very good.
