Cymbeline, Cymbeline, Shakespeares' Globe Theatre

Richard had the lead part in this production of Shakespeare's Cymbeline at the Globe Theatre. The story was based on legends of the early Celtic British King Cunobelinus and deals with the themes of innocence and jealousy. Mike Alfreds watched and noted very show to make sure it was different every night, we did ask him not to give notes in the interval on part one. Always remember the performance on 9/11 when planes crash into two towers during our interval, we were watching live on tv in the green room.......we had an hour break before continuing: Every American in the audience tried to call home but failed as the networks were down....
