kenneth branagh directs.
kenneth branagh, once known as the ken in ‘ken and emma’ while he was married to emma thompson oh so many years ago, has returned to the stage in anton chekov’s ‘ivanov.’ the reviews so far have been stellar. the london production of the tom stoppard adaptation has garnered 5 star reviews from both the guardian and the independent. the bits in the play about capital got much laughter from the crowd. i attended a performance today and wasn’t able to get much in the way of photographs. apparently branagh took off immediately after curtain call.
