It's just worth mentioning that I got it hopelessly wrong on HAIRSPRAY. Which just goes to prove I have very little idea what I'm talking about.
Speaking of wrong, one of my favourite reviews was from Nat Brenner, the ex-principal of the Brsitol Old Vic Theatre School who saw my performance as Sir Nathaniel in a school production of LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST. When I asked him the next morning what he thought he smiled:
"Marvellous. Very good indeed. Wrong"
"What do you mean?" I queried
"Why did you play him old?"
"The director told me to" I replied.
"You always listen to your director, do you?" was his enquiry. "Anway, you did it very well. Good performance. Wrong."
