Twisted `Richard' reigns in out-of-whack world

Shakespeare in Washington

Theater Review

February 11, 2007|By J. Wynn Rousuck | J. Wynn Rousuck,Sun Theater Critic

In Richard III at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre, everything is off kilter.

The set, designed by Lee Savage, slants in one direction, and the floor slants in the other. As the duplicitous title character, Geraint Wyn Davies looks normal from one side and disfigured from the other -- clubfoot, withered arm, hunchback and a face in dire need of a Phantom of the Opera mask.

RICHARD III / / Through March 18 at the Shakespeare Theatre, 450 7th St. N.W., Washington -- $19-$76.25. 877-487-8849 or
