The BBC4 broadcast of the play's production at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, London, England
5 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Although the film quality isn't the best, this is a rare recording of the men's company's 2003 performance at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in Bankside, London. It stars Mark Rylance in the title role. In 2005, he will step down from 10 years as the artistic director of the Globe. Anyone who has seen his performances knows his skill and sheer sense of enjoyment at performing Shakespeare.

My wife and I were present during this performance to a sold-out crowd. To see this performance is to see one of Shakespeare's history plays done at its best. As with many Globe productions, it was done in "original practice," meaning the staging (including men playing all the roles), costumes, props, and music are all true to historical Elizabethan practice.

I highly recommend viewing this play, as well as any other at the Globe.
