Stunning and clever. One part alone stands by itself but this adaptation is like a bag of chips. Can you stop with just one?”
“A FAST-PACED, FIENDISHLY ENGAGING POLITICAL THRILLER.
A triumphant, blockbuster adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Tudor-history novels.”
“A CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT! History comes alive and heads roll on Broadway in this bold slice of English history.
What Henry VIII wants, Henry VIII gets. Guaranteeing that is Thomas Cromwell, the royal fixer at the center of the bracing Broadway double-header Wolf Hall Parts One and Two.
Adapted from Hilary Mantel’s best-sellers “Wolf Hall” and “Bring Up the Bodies,” the plays retrace 1500s political intrigue in Henry’s house of cards. The English history comes alive with crisp and plainspoken urgency.”
“WOLF HALL IS A MAGNIFICENT UNDERTAKING.
History brought to pulsing, highly animated life. It’s the magic of theatre, courtesy the incomparable Royal Shakespeare Company.”
“THE ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY’S OUTSTANDING PRODUCTION does justice to the revered novels while also offering its own intriguing spin with dark laughs rolling by as frequently as the heads.”
“Lucidly told, handsomely staged and emotionally charged.”
“There’s a rip-roaring, malevolently Machiavellian, viciously nasty, blood-letting saga of intrigue on view just now.”
“JAM-PACKED WITH LUST, BETRAYAL, GREED AND VIOLENCE.”
“A THRILLING HIGH-STAKES GAME full of politics, religion and enough sex and violence to satisfy the most depraved tastes.”
“THE ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY’S EPIC PRODUCTION IS MAJESTIC IN SCOPE AND CONSISTENTLY ENGROSSING.”
