Satan Come Forth!

Someone was kind enough to tip me off to this having been put up on youtube. Utterly hilarious – and what an absurd wig they put on Mike. They all look so young.

    What fun to watch. The cast must have been exhausted after performing that scene. They all spoke so clearly too (my hearing isn’t very good, tinnitus & getting older means I often struggle to hear actors on TV & at some theatres). It’s a play we haven’t seen, so I hope the RSC do it again soon. Does Mike like watching his younger self on stage?

      No! He refuses. CanΒ΄t stand it. And he stops me if he can help it. And yes, it was wonderful how people enunciated, wasnΒ΄t it? Now itΒ΄s like they chew words instead of speaking them.

    That’s quite an act! Had escaped from police custody? He has a cuff on his left hand

        It was such an act. I think by the end of those 10 minutes all of them were exhausted. Does he still act? Or happily retired

        Very happily retired. He stopped enjoying that sort of thing

    Excellent version of this play. I believe I saw this whole production years ago on the PBS station here in Chicago.

  5. I couldn’t understand a word any of them said, but Mike sure does look handsome.

      • Really, honest to gawd, I did not understand one single word of what anyone said. I can generally get an English accent if the people talk slow enough, but this dialog was so rapid I was lost.

    When did mumbling come into fashion?

      I don’t know, but it certainly caught on. Half of British television is now done in mumbling- and it’s exhausting!

    Great fun. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Shakespeare as a musical but it’s perfect!

      That was sort of a golden period of creativity in theatre. Between the RSC and the Glasgow Citizen’s they redefined what theatre could be.

        Yes but…how did all those Shakespearean actors learn to sing and dance?!?

        Many, including Mike, spoke more than sang – and the dancing was all thanks to Gillian Lynne, the brilliant choreographer who also did Cats, Phantom and Beauty & the Beast πŸ™‚

        Wow…I am impressed. I would never have guessed that any of the cast, Mike included, were less than professional ‘artistes’ as well as actors.

    I recognize Judi Dench. But sheesh! I can’t stand dialog like a battle scene. I’d have hated Shakespeare. Oh, wait. I DO hate Shakespeare.

        Ah, it’s all about people and their tiny lives. Don’t much care for people or being reminded about my tiny life.
        Incredible language — for play — during the 1600’s maybe.

    You probably know already that homophobe Katy Faust has a new website; she now claims to be advocating for children’s rights, but it’s the same old gay hatred. Here is the link.

      Yes, I’ve been keeping an eye on it. It’s in essence a failed project, as it should be. In more than a year I think she’s attracted less than 50 followers to that website’s twitter page.
