Reviews are now in for The Tempest, starring Ralph Fiennes. Here are the key broadsheet ones:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/stage/2011/sep/07/the-tempest-review
http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/theatre-dance/reviews/the-tempest-theatre-royal-haymarket-london-2350943.html
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/theatre/theatre-reviews/8746328/The-Tempest-Theatre-Royal-Haymarket-review.html

Those of you who know me, will know that I only ever run reviews from The Telegraph and The Guardian, and that I favour The Telegraph.

On this occasion, The Guardian loved it and The Telegraph hated it. I was torn. I checked The Independent and they loved it.

So the Ayes have it! (Can you see how I have rigged the vote?!).

I have not seen the production yet so I cannot possibly comment but I know Ralph Fiennes is always outstanding live, especially when performing Shakespeare, so I have given you The Guardian and The Independent reviews first, even though in normal circumstances I always prioritise The Telegraph. Yes I am completely and utterly biased - I admit it!
