Coriolanus @ The Kennedy Center

No one does Shakespeare better then the Royal Shakespeare Company. Upon walking in the Eisenhower Theater at the Kennedy Center you are awestruck by the simplistic beauty of the set design. Each actors performance is nuanced and fully realized no matter the scene or amount of dialogue to be delivered. William Houston , Coriolanus himself, entrances the audience as soon as he walks on the stage and before he even utters a word. Of all the performances I have seen this year, this is by far the finest I have yet to ever witness and can not wait until the RSC returns to Washington to perform other works of the bard.
