Richard III at SFCC in '11

Posted on Wed, Mar 10, 2010 at 2:54 PM

A year from now (evidently in March 2011), William Marlowe plans to direct Shakespeare's Richard III at the Falls, with Damon Curtis Mentzer (most recently, A Tuna Christmas and Shakespeare in Hollywood at the Civic; but also The Importance of Being Earnest at Actors Rep; and Irma VepOthello and Woman in Black at Interplayers, along with many others) in the hunchback title role.

Mentzer's on a hot streak, since he's getting married on March 22 (a Monday, natch -- we are theater people, after all).

And all Bobo has to say is that if Damon proposed to Kari McClure in anything like the way that Richard of Gloucester woos Lady Anne in the play, then he's very lucky that Kari said yes.

We wish the soon-to-be-married couple much happiness and (if they so choose) many little thespians, clustered 'round the hearth for familial readers theater performances. (To be held, of course, on Monday nights.)

[Note: To view a photo of Antony Sher playing Richard III in 1984 for the Royal Shakespeare Company, included in a North Texas blog called "Art&Seek" along with a good commentary about a production of the play at the Kitchen Dog Theater -- at least for now -- you'll have to visit stagethrust.blogspot.com, where Michael Bowen's theater blog has resided since August 2005 and will remain at least for the foreseeable future.
