Richard II Review Donmar 2011

What the popular press had to say...

"Michael Grandage ends his reign as artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse with a beautiful and moving production of a play about a king giving up his crown."
Charles Spencer for The Telegraph

"Michael Grandage ends his dazzling tenure at the Donmar with a Richard II that has many virtues: clarity, speed, superb set and sound design."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"While not the Donmar at its transcendent best, this fluent and polished Richard II is an appropriate way to mark Grandage's departure.."
Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

"Eddie Redmayne's brilliant Richard is already installed on his throne as the audience take their seats for this marvellous farewell production by the Donmar's departing artistic director, Michael Grandage."
Paul Taylor for The Independent
