I’ve got my line up for May in London settled, it’s busy & looks great. Started off tonight with *Midsummer Night’s Dream* at the Globe: a cold, clear night for a fun romp, with a very campy Bottom & oddly Irish-inflected Oberon and Titania (perhaps they put on the brouges to distinguish themselves from Theseus and Hippolyta, with which roles they were cross cast?). Good lovers, distinguished by hair color (Hermia and Demtrius dark, Helena & Lysander blonde: which paired opposite colors in the end.) The cold almost made me drop L25 on a Lear hoodie, but it was a bit too silly looking.
Things will continue with *Troilus and Cressida* at the Barbican on Thursday, another *Dream* and then *Merchant* at Stratford on Friday & Saturday, *The Revenger’s Tragedy* at the Olivier next Tuesday, and the opening night of *Lear* on the Globe next Wed. Then it will be almost time to come home.
