Haven't gotten the opportunity to experience any of the Shakespeare in Washington events yet? May we recommend Coriolanus at the Kennedy Center, which our reviewer says is absolutely "riveting":
"William Houston, in the title role of the leader with guts and guile, has an extraordinary voice—his stage whisper can be heard in the back of the house, and it can build to a thunderous roar. Physically slight, he has the stage presence of a titan. I have seen the play, which is not often produced, with both Laurence Olivier and Ian McKellen in the title role; William Houston’s performance is the best of the three."
