  1. Thanks for the nicely digested/formatted version of the season, Robyn. (And thanks for the press release posting earlier.) Have to say the early rumors didn't have me salivating in anticipation as is usually the case. Now that the season is laid out, it looks like the performers (McKenna, Bedford, Wynn-Davies in particular) will be the draw for me, rather than the plays themselves.

  2. For myself, I can't wait to see Seana McKenna as Richard III - especially since the director is Miles Potter. High hopes for that one!

  3. Hey Robyn, the newly commissioned musical isn't actually part of the 2011 season. It will be part of a future season.
