RICHARD I I I (2010) NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: July 9, 2010
Did He Like It?
At what price glory? One of Shakespeare's most popular plays ever since its debut, Richard III is the story of a man who will do anything to become king--and the ruthless ambition that inevitably undoes him. This production, sure to be one of the most eagerly anticipated of the year, reunites award-winning actor John Douglas Thompson (as Richard) with S&Co. Artistic Director Tony Simotes, who directed Thompson in the 2008/2009 production of Othello that proved one of S&Co.'s most critically acclaimed box office hits ever. Thompson is joined by longtime S&Co. favorite Tod Randolph (Queen Elizabeth), last seen onstage here in Enchanted April, the surprising smash of 2006.
In Power Grab, the Force Is With Him

"Take a good look at the recumbent, inanimate figure that occupies center stage at the beginning of Shakespeare & Company’s rousing production of “Richard III.” That’s the last time you’ll see it so motionless or so horizontal. The body is that of the title character of Shakespeare’s grisliest history play. And as portrayed by John Douglas Thompson, this monarch-in-the-making quickly establishes himself as a man who is almost never still and who takes absolutely nothing lying down. "
