We watched Henry IV Part One and The White Devil here over the Summer and were very impressed - as we always are with the RSC.

Slightly annoying to be seated near a couple who insisted on talking + rustling sweets but nevertheless, we enjoyed our visits.

Highly recommended.

We caught the production of Henry IV Part 1 with Antony Sher as Falstaff. Both production and cast were excellent and it made for a memorable evening. So good in fact that we have already booked for Part 2, when it comes on tour to Manchester later in the year.

Another excellent evening at the RSC. We treated ourselves to top price tickets and enjoyed a top class view of the performance. While it is always enjoyable in the round, it seemed better for being in the centre of the action. What a fun production this was of a play that is rarely performed. We wondered why, but perhaps it is more difficult to make a success for an average company, although the young cast here made a splendid job of bringing the text to life and having fun with the Italian contemporary setting. Recommend that you catch this show if you can at one of they places they are playing.

Excellent seats regardless of location in theater. Great restaurant for dinner prior to play. Within easy walking distance of hotels and shopping district. The Royal Shakespeare Company's performance was well done. A trip to remember.
