Having played Blair for the last decade, he's well practiced.

Correction to myself - the Fool is the wisest character in Lear. Playing Blair won't have given Sheen any insights into playing wise characters.

Theatre Royal Bath, I believe, Lear is one of the Shakespeare plays like Much Ado, Macbeth, Hamlet that gets done constantly by various theatre companies. Stuff like Measure for Measure, The Taming of the Shrew, Merchant of Venice don't revived as often.
The Taming of the Shrew is one I think would do really well as a commericial production like the Tennant/Tate Much Ado About Nothing but in the vein of Frankenstein and Old Times and have the actors playing Katerina and Petruchio swap roles on a rotaed basis or coin swap or just have a man playing Katerina and a woman playing Petruchio.

Propeller are doing a few performances of an all-male Taming at the Hampstead in July if I remember correctly.
And the Globe are touring an all female version! I am looking forward to seeing in July in Oxford.
