What did you like best about Richard II? What did you like least?
The play is one of Shakespeare's best. However, Gielgud has not captured Richard at all and comes across as being totally out of character and probably too old to effectively portray Richard's somewhat immature nature. Joel MacCormack gives a much better performance as Richard in BBC Radio Shakespeare.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Richard II?
Sorry to say that my abiding memory of this recording is the lack lustre performance od Gielgud
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Sir John Gielgud?
Sorry to say - Almost anyone !
Do you think Richard II needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Any additional comments?
I would say that just because someone has a reputation as a Shakespearian Actor, it does not follow that they will be effective or suitable for all roles !!
