No movie around boasts richer peformances or wittier dialogue or a more turbulent and touching core relationship than the 1964 costume drama Becket - and you'll never see it in better circumstances than at the Senator Theatre, where a restored print opens today. Starring Peter O'Toole as King Henry II and Richard Burton as Thomas Becket, his rebellious Archbishop of Canterbury, this movie version of Jean Anouilh's play has always possessed as much vitality as marquee value. It was a popular success as well as a smash with the mainstream press.

Olney Theatre Center's production of "Becket" takes place entirely in the tomb where Thomas Becket is buried. But it's a very lively tomb.Under the agile co-direction of Jim Petosa and Halo Wines, this Jean Anouilh history play turns designer James Kronzer's faux stone, multi-level set into everything from a metaphorical playground to a metaphorical English Channel.The playground effect shows up in the early flashbacks when Tony Rizzoli's King Henry II and Paul Morella's Becket are horsing around.

You get off the coach from London in Canterbury's modest little bus station, trot down Gravel Walk past a parking lot and come face to face with the Marlowe Arcade.The Marlowe Arcade? As in Christopher Marlowe? This is appalling. A shopping center named for the playwright murdered 400 years ago? Shopping bags bearing the name of the pyrotechnic creator of "Dr. Faustus" and "The Jew of Malta"?If they've done that to Marlowe -- who was only born here in 1564 -- what have they done to Geoffrey Chaucer, the 14th-century poet who immortalized the town in "The Canterbury Tales"?
