As some of you know, I am directing a production of Richard III.
We open April 27 at OhMyRibs on Theatre Row. For more information check out this link. And here are the women who are queens in this production. Queen Margaret is the increasingly maddened widow of King Henry VI. Queen Elizabeth is her former lady-in-waiting who married the man who usurped Henry's throne, the eventual Edward IV.
Before the play is over, both shall be widows. Both shall have lost their sons. Both will have lost their crowns.
And both are giving fantastic performances! Honestly, it is hard to take my eyes off them when they are on stage!
