Thoughts on Wolf Hall (Part 1)

Saw Wolf Hall (Part 1) at Winter Garden tonight.
  1. Posters are deceiving! Anne Boleyn is at the center but she gets like 1/10 of the stage time. Her character feels a bit caricatured, but God is Lydia Leonard pretty to look at. (She was in Archipelago, too!)
  2. Cromwell, the unlikely protagonist. Kinda fun.
  3. Even WOLSEY was fun the beginning parts. God forbid.
  4. Katherine of Aragorn—I might as well come out and say it...I prefer The Tudors version a la Maria Doyle Kennedy.
  5. Looks like they spent all their non-personnel budget on costumes (very lovely ones, I assure you) so they had no money left for the staging—I'm talking about, like, none. Mostly there were chairs for people to sit on. A table, if somebody had to write something.
If I have time before I leave for Europe I'll try to catch Part 2. But there are some other stuff I definitely want to see...
  1. Act of God
  2. Finding Neverland
  3. The Visit
But the project is wrapping up and I'm dreadfully busy...and there are two separate parties of people coming over to visit in June... =o=
