Raks's take on Emperor and Galilean

As you all know, I am a HUGE fan of this production - it is epic and outstanding. It is much better than Frankenstein - Benedict's performance as the Creature was mind-blowing, but Emperor and Galilean exercises your mind - key themes are friendship, integrity, faith, tyranny and ethics/morality. Andrew Scott puts his life and soul into the part of the Emperor Julian. For the first time in 20 years of London theatre going, I saw this play 3 times in a row last week and I am seeing it again 3 times in a row this week. I have fallen in love with the piece and taken it into my heart. Highly highly highly recommended.
