did not like - National Theater Live: The Comedy of Errors

I did not like this at all. First time I walked out on one of the HD events. Actors were hard to understand - most of them had regional accents. Usually, I have no problem with Shakespeare's English, but combined with the accents, it was very hard to understand.

Shakespearean Slapstick

By Honkisz
Written March 02, 2012
The National Theatre's production of Comedy of Errors is not your grandmother's Shakespeare, but a very entertaining updating of the bard with some witty comedic touches by an excellent cast. The wandering onstage band is a wonderful touch. The production moves at breakneck speed to the play's ultimate revelation of mistaken identities and unknown relationships that drive the plot. It is a helluva romp and well worth seeing.
