Review: Something Rotten!

Do you fondly remember that Taming of the Shrew episode from Moonlighting, back in 1986? Whenever blue, do you stream Shakespeare in Love for succor? Are you a fierce partisan for Blackadder II? Elizabethan fops and wenches forming a stagewide kick line cause a little flutter under the ruff?

The Belle of Belfast

It’s a sorry state of affairs when the nattering of a dotty old spinster (Conolly, sly) feels juicier than a simmering attraction between a foul-mouthed 17-year-old (Lydic, vivid in a sketchy role) and her 35-year-old parish priest (Allan-Headley, oddly impassive)

Doctor Zhivago

Based on a sweeping historical novel crammed with characters and incident, Doctor Zhivago follows the fortunes of a heroic man with a divided heart across decades of turmoil and revolution, as he is hounded by a self-righteous upholder of justice. Sounds a little like Les Misérables, non?
