Yes, more London

Janet McTeer as Schiller's Mary Stuart

The NYT Brit-ink continues to flow, in day 3 of Brantley's travelogue. And Playgoer eats it up.

I'm beginning to nod along with those comments coming in that the difference may come to more than economics. The stunning looking black-and-white Mary Stuart (pictured above) just betrays a refined and complex sensibility to the classics not on display on these shores. I believe it's harbored in the souls of many of our finest theatre practitioners. But maybe it is not nurtured by our institutions, our critics, perhaps our audiences and our funders, as well.
