Pick of the week: Richard II

I was very impressed by David Tennant in Richard II (like everybody else, it seems). I only saw one of the other shows in the Lancaster cycle at BAM, Henry IV Pt. 1, but it left me cold. Antony Sher's Falstaff, in particular, felt by-the-numbers -- Sophie Stanton's portrayal in the Phyllida Lloyd staging at St. Ann's was a million times more inventive, and not just because she was a woman playing a man.
