Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Presumably this has something to do with Olivier playing Archie Rice at the royal Court.Theatre is generally a bit underrepresented on the 'Slinger so this is good to see.
The history of the live theater is deliberately kept in the moment - if ya wasn't there, ya missed it seems to be the unspoken legacy. How many would have been enthralled by a Laurette Taylor or Kim Stanley live stage performance at their peak if preserved on film, or even some reasonable photographs of the same? Yeah, I know, it's different when you're there in the audience, hearing and seeing the actors in a more immediate fashion, but when one grows up where access to first-class productions is limited, it seems like an institutional bias towards an elite or the lucky.
Theatre is generally a bit underrepresented on the 'Slinger so this is good to see.It's not been by design. I'd say for at least two years I've wanted to do some kind of Theater-oriented series on here, but the resources for it (translation: the quantity of such images online) have always been minimal. I could start a series of, say, Theatrical posters, but I doubt if I could sustain it for very long.
Just realised Peter Gill is in this picture. I met him last night!(the production of Gaslight he directed is on at the Old Vic in London at the moment.)
