What are those other reviewers talking about? This was a wonderful production, superbly acted by an amazing cast who were full of passion and who had brilliant comic timing. I did not want it to end. Judging by the applause and overheard comments on the way out my fellow audience agreed with me.

Unfortunately it was the worst production of Shakespeare I have ever seen. Really disappointing, terrible casting. Save your money and go to the Globe, can't believe this is actually playing.

what a huge disappointment. Not vibrant, not sexy, this was simply boring. Some of the cast were trying to pretend it was in Italy by speaking very bad Italian with lousy accents. That made it seem like GCSE schoolchildren in an improvisation. What was Derek Jacobi doing? He seemed to be in a different play. Where was the passion of the young Verona blades? Where was the passionate love affair? The lovers were like strangers who had a one night stand. Why did they kill themselves? They certainly killed the play for me.

Steamy? Sexy? Forget it. Never seen Game of Thrones but Mr Madden certainly didn't rule here.. he oozed about as much sex as a kipper and his acting was as wooden as the boxes they come in. Mr Jacobi seemed to be playing a campfollower.. a shame for a man who is an outstanding actor. Ms james lacked any oomph and felt as though she was struggling to convey some of the emotions. Ah well good for the younger Thrones addicts maybe.. they'll keep it full to drawl over the star... me I'll read the play.

My wife and I saw a live transmission of Shakespeare's 'The Winter's Tale' yesterday evening at our local Vue Cinema in Basingstoke.

Being partially deaf in both ears, I was very impressed by how clear all the speech was.

It was an enthralling and very entertaining production.

Our thanks to all concerned for a most enjoyable evening.

How did Miranda Raison as Hermione manage to remain so still!!


We look forward to seeing more of the productions.
