    The Cool Ferocity of a King Inflamed by Jealousy

    Charles Isherwood

    July 24, 2011: A thrill of true feeling runs through virtually every scene of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of “The Winter’s Tale” at the Park Avenue Armory. Scalding jealousy, hunger for revenge, young love in rapturous bloom, the soul-corroding sorrow of regret: all are evoked in the saturated colors that have sometimes been missing from the company’s New York repertory season this summer.

    The Winter's Tale

    Brian Scott Lipton

    July 23, 2011: A sad tale may be best for winter, but the Royal Shakespeare Company's extremely solid production of The Winter's Tale, now being co-presented by the Lincoln Center Festival and the Park Avenue Armory, proves to be a fine summer diversion.

    The Winter's Tale

    Matt Windman

    July 25, 2011: For all his faults, Othello is at least worthy of our pity. After all, Iago poisons Othello's mind to make him believe that Desdemona is committing adultery. But in Shakespeare's "The Winter's Tale," Leontes, the King of Sicilia, only has himself to blame for his downfall. When he becomes convinced that his loving wife Hermoine is sleeping with his best friend Poli-xenes, the King of Bohemia, it is entirely the result of his own irrational paranoia, which ends up destroying his family and throwing his kingdom into chaos.

    The Winter's Tale

    Jonathan Mandell

    July 24, 2011: The replica of the Stratford-upon-Avon theater that the Royal Shakespeare Company has built inside the Park Avenue Armory looks from the outside like the bottom half of a rocket ship, which is apt for “The Winter’s Tale,” a play that seems to take us somewhere far from Earth. As the play begins, Leontes, the king of Sicilia, has a lovely wife, a terrific best friend, and a bright and lively son, with a daughter on the way. In short order, the king more or less destroys them all, because of a suspicion that his pregnant wife has committed adultery with his best friend, an accusation that has no basis in reality.
