First Reviews Of David Tennant's U.S Stage Debut In Richard II



The first reviews of David Tennant's U.S stage debut as Richard II in the Royal Shakespeare Company's King & Country Cycle have been published.
The press night for Richard II was held on Friday 1st April at the BAM Harvey Theater in New York.
Richard II is joined by the critically acclaimed productions of Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 and Henry V. All four plays are directed by the RSC's Artistic Director Gregory Doran, and the company includes Anthony Sher, Jasper Britton, Oliver Ford-David, Jane Lapotaire and Julian Glover. 

The Hollywood Reporter calling David "the brilliant Scottish actor" says:
"Gregory Doran's staging of Richard II is most notable for the supple playfulness of David Tennant's performance in the title role. An extravagant monarch as capricious in his rulings as in his seesawing mood swings from airy self-deification to sinking self-doubt, Tennant's narcissistic king flounces about the stage in long ginger tresses and flowing brocade robes, looking part-Jesus and part-Florence Welch. This is a man too stuck inside his own pretty head to govern."

Meanwhile Newsday speak of a "mesmerizing David Tennant" read their full review here.

The King & Country cycle runs at the BAM Harvey Theater in New York until May 1st.
