Apollo Theatre reviews



By Greg L.

I saw this show in 19 December. Matinee performance. It's a good show. Clearly Mark Rylance stands above the rest of the cast in every way. But it is the essence of what this production does by bringing Shakespeare as it probably was back to life. the set is simple yet intricate. Costume absolutely brilliant. The musicians and instruments you would never had seen live before in such a way.It's long, has its dull moments but overall a great performance.

I saw this play yesterday (1st august 2011). Must say, I thought it was just okay. The first half was really boring, very corny jokes. The second half somehow was quite enjoyable, the repartees were well-thought and timely delivered. Overall, I'd give it 2 stars on 5. I don't exactly regret watching the show, but had I a better alternative, I would have definitely opted for the alternative. (I got excellent stall tickets on offer for £24 , that's partly why I don;t regret watching it. Had I paod £50 for the same tickets, my review woudl have been a lot more severe)

Yeah, I've heard really good things about it, and him of course! Hopefully going to see it in a couple of weeks, just gotta get a group of girls together so we can go and ogle him - though I'm sure the play itself is good of course!

i saw this play yesterday(sat 13th sep) at the 3pm showing and thought it was very good, i have not seent he film so do not have that to relate to, the performance from adam godley was very good and very convincing i think he is a very good actor i have not heard of him nor seen any of his films, josh hartnett was also very good i thought, the play was funny at times and i was even laughing at some of the parts on the train on my way home, i would recommened going to see this

Saw Rain Man during preview week so I'm bearing in mind the running may now be as smooth as usual. Performance started 15mins late which is unusual for a West End show. Was seated in balcony with great view but dialogue at times very hard to hear and decifer. Adam Godley's portrayal of Raymond was sincere and touching with a good touch of humour. Hartnett was in all honestly disappointing, unclear delivery, several fluffed lines and no real presence on stage which I was hoping for- Godley certainly deserves greater credit. Also some expletive-filled outburts from Hartnett's character that didn't feel fully warrented. Other cast members are quite forgettable. The pacing is strained at times and slow throughout, leaving a wish for urgency and pace at times...felt like a car grinding to a half on a few occasions. Interval was about 25mins long and second half only 30mins long with one of the most abrupt endings I've ever seen on stage. The plot stays close to the original film but those hoping for award-winning performances will be left disappointed.
