Well, baby got her first bad review... sort of. Lear got a good- not great, but good (3 out of 5)- review. The reviewer like Lear and Edmund and Kent and Gloucester, but as for the rest of us:
[T]his production is not without its problems. With the exceptions of the actors mentioned above, the rest of the cast is only varying degrees of competent; some struggled with the text, either flubbing lines outright, or delivering them in the lilting style that comes from actors not understanding the meaning behind Shakespeare’s words.I think that's a little unfair. Yes, there are a couple actors who don't have the chops for this show (which I won't get into here) but the rest of us I think are decent enough. I personally thought I'm doing a million times better than I did last time. Ah, well. If this is the worst review I get, I'm doing okay, I guess. And my name is nowhere in the article, so it won't come up on my internet record. :)
Here's the rest if you want to read it.
In other news, The Washington Post is reviewing Lear. I am petrified.
