We went to see Jess Titchener's best friend in York yesterday (Monday).
We actually went to the opening production in the new pop-up
Shakespeare's Rose Theatre in York and only then discovered Rina Mahoney
was in the cast.
Unlike the rather more permanent Globe in London, this reproduction
theatre was built out of scaffolding in about 3 weeks and will probably
come down as quickly when the run ends in September. Apart from the
stage area, much of the inside looks -well- scaffoldy but externally
it's a commanding presence. The play we saw was the opener - Macbeth.
Some fine performances too. And a few not-so fine. It was the first
performance so maybe it just needs a little more time to bed in.
