The Playgoer: RNT

Anglophiles rejoice! The new Royal National Theatre season is announced! And it does seem yummy.

Among the new plays, how's this for theatre history geek heaven: Michael Frayn's latest is about Max Reinhardt! Directed by Michael Blakemore, of course.

Also: Nick Hytner put in the awkward position of having to echo criticisms of the UK Arts Council theatre cuts, while remaining grateful for RNT's own increases.

Your teaser remark on Michael Frayn's next play caught my interest. The linked article didn't say much more, sadly (it said more about why Reinhardt is known in America but not more about the play). Having seen, and now read, Frayn's last two plays, Copenhagen and Democracy, I'm a pretty big admirer of his, so I'm looking forward to hearing more about Max! or whatever it's called.
