Lenny Henry might not seem the most obvious choice for Shakespeare but apparently his debut at the National Theatre in Shakespeare’s A Comedy of Errors is going down a storm. Despite being more familiar to us as a stand-up comic or for his contributions to Comic Relief, the critics have clearly warmed to Henry’s take on his role in this production. A Comedy of Errors runs at the National until 1st April 2012.
Interestingly, the National Theatre made their own little error on the opening night, mistakenly partnering one character with the wrong husband in the printing of the programme! Apparently that is in the process of being rectified although it is a deliberate error that happens to be made in the production itself.
