All On Her Own: Zoe WanamakerCommentaires : Harlequinade will play in repertory with The Winter's Tale. Part of The Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company SeasonPresse : "Wanamaker, who, in the monologue All On Her Own, brings a brilliant, layered depth to the role of the newly widowed woman who hits the whisky and pay dirt as she talks to the departed husband who may or may not have killed himself." Paul Taylor for The Independent
"Harlequinade: It’s hardly major Rattigan but it shows actors delightedly sending up a happily vanished theatrical world. All On Her Own: Wanamaker, sprawled over a sofa in humiliating self-abasement, performs the piece with a soul-baring virtuosity that transcends the material and confirms that the Branagh season is devoted to actors." Michael Billington for The Guardian
"Harlequinade: Slight and appealingly silly piece. All On Her Own: [Zoë Wanamaker's] performance is at once fierce and melancholy — finely judged and genuinely sad." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
Macbeth (2013-07-St Peter's Church-Manchester)Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: St Peter's Church (Manchester - Angleterre) Durée : 2 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Friday 05 July 2013Première : Friday 05 July 2013Dernière : Sunday 21 July 2013Mise en scène : Rob Ashford • Kenneth Branagh • Chorégraphie : Producteur : Avec : Kenneth Branagh (Macbeth), Alex Kingston (Lady Macbeth), David Anmen (Siward), Andy Apollo (Mentieth), Elliot Balchin (Donalbain)Commentaires : Présenté dans le cadre du MIF (Manchester International Festival) de 2013.
Kenneth Branagh’s return to Shakespeare after more than a decade, featuring Alex Kingston as Lady Macbeth, was a knockout. His interpretation of Macbeth as a good man declining into desolation and despair was exhilarating. Audiences sat inches from the action as sparks actually flew in the heat of battle. Blood, mud, fire and rain filled the space – Hallé St Peter’s, an intimate deconsecrated church in Ancoats. Never before used as a theatre, the space itself also took a starring role.
On the last Saturday of the Festival, more than 5,000 people brought chairs, cushions and picnics to enjoy a live outdoor relay of MACBETH, presented in a central Manchester car park kindly provided by NCP. Tens of thousands more watched in cinemas around the UK and beyond via National Theatre (NT) Live.Presse : "Fast, furious and unstoppable, time keeps rushing forward in this Macbeth, knocking the breath out of everyone, audience included" The New York Times
Romeo and Juliet (2016-05-Garrick Theatre-London)Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Garrick Theatre (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 2 mois 2 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Thursday 12 May 2016Première : Wednesday 25 May 2016Dernière : Saturday 13 August 2016Mise en scène : Kenneth Branagh • Chorégraphie : Producteur : Avec : Richard Madden (Romeo), Lily James (Juliet), Derek Jacobi (Mercutio), Meera Syal (Nurse), Marisa Berenson (Lady Capulet), Jack Colgrave Hirst (Benvolio), Tom Hanson (Paris), Matthew Hawksley (Anthony), Taylor James (Prince), Ansu Kabia (Tybalt), Racheal Ofori (Potpan), Nikki Patel (Balthasar), Chris Porter (Lord Montague), Zoe Rainey (Lady Montague), Michael Rouse (Lord Capulet), Sam Valentine (Friar Laurence), Kathryn Wilder (Peta/Apothecary)Commentaires : Part of The Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company SeasonPresse : "There’s a lot of collective weeping and wailing to establish the ominous mood, but also a swiftly counterpoised gaiety and coutured sophistication." Dominic Cavendish for The Telegraph
"The action is set in 1950s Verona, and it’s mucho, mucho Italiano: there’s a lot of clichéd “ciao”-ing and stereotype-trading matriarchal shouting. But it also proves an effective backdrop: there’s a whiff of Mafia machismo, a sense that la dolce vita is undercut with an ever-present threat of violence." Holly Williams for The Independent
"The whole thing is done with a speed and vigour that ensures we are never bored; and if I generally preferred the first half to the second, that is because Shakespeare’s tragedy itself depends too much on chance and the faulty Italian postal service." Michael Billington for The Guardian
"Though it is stylish, accessible and illuminated by Lily James, it misses the passionate intensity of the tragedy." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
Winter's tale (The) (2015-11-Garrick Theatre-London)Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Garrick Theatre (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 2 mois 1 semaine Nombre : Première Preview : Saturday 17 October 2015Première : Saturday 07 November 2015Dernière : Saturday 16 January 2016Mise en scène : Rob Ashford • Kenneth Branagh • Chorégraphie : Producteur : Avec : Kenneth Branagh (Leontes), Judi Dench (Paulina), Tom Bateman (Florizel), Jessie Buckley (Perdita), Jack Colgrave Hirst (The Clown), Hadley Fraser (Polixenes), Michael Pennington (Antigonus), Zoe Rainey (Emilia), Miranda Raison (Hermione), John Shrapnel (Camillo), Kathryn Wilder (Mopsa), Jimmy Yuil (Shepherd), John Dagleish (Autolycus)Commentaires : Part of The Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Season.Presse : "Branagh gives an extraordinarily searching portrayal of Leontes, the Sicilian king seized with baseless suspicion that his wife and bosom friend are having an affair... A red-letter day for theatre lovers." Paul Taylor for The Independent
"Although this production ends, unfashionably, in unequivocal forgiveness, it is not afraid to hint at the darker elements in Shakespeare’s fable. Branagh and Dench are surrounded by a first-rate team." Michael Billington for The Guardian
"At the interval I was a little underwhelmed but the second half opens with Dame Judi giving us silvery Time’s speech about the passage of 16 seasons. Her cadences are hypnotic." Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail
