Nanoose, I was talking about impact, as Richard suggested. If Charles Moore thinks Coriolanus is a better production he's just wrong. IMHO.
Charles Moore is one of a few right-wing seers who pontificate on Shakespeare to bolster their intellectual heft. Daniel Hannan is another. Likewise the absurd P.G. Wodehouse character James Delingpole. In the same way that Margaret Thatcher's favourite TV show was " Yes Minister" I assume political chatterers are drawn to political plays.
Miles was definitely the first Peter, with Sheila Hancock as Mrs Darling, and Stephen Moore as Mr and Hook .Great staging and music and flying especially the flight from the nursery and the final breathtaking stunt on the empty stage.
Yes I saw it, but I think the year after when Stephen Moore had replaced Joss Ackland and Rylance had replaced Anderson. Moore and Anderson were never in it together as far as I know.
