Carnival reaches Southwark in this vibrant new A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with a lively cast &and colourful designs – and don’t get comfortable if you’re a groundling.
I love Christopher Marlowe. I love the raciness and rebel in him. And sometimes, particularly in Paulette Randall’s reframed version here at Shakespeare’s Globe with Doctor Faustus.
Paulette Randall’s gender-swap, colour-blind, version of Christopher Marlowe’s fiendish morality tale Doctor Faustus succeeds in ticking a lot of trendy boxes but fails to create innovative, or even interesting, theatre.
Doctor Faustus at Shakespeare’s Globe certainly provides an entertaining evening and, if it raises questions as well as providing answers, its approach is fresh, important and fascinating.
