George Innes pays homage to the mastery of William
Shakespeare and Gielguds artful journey as he traveled through
Shakespeares Ages of Man
Under the clear unerring light of the theater the audience is made acutely
aware that the world is indeed a stage and that we all are merely players.
As Gielgud before him, Innes treads that same path that takes us from youth
to old age. We walk beside the romantic ,but ill fated star-crossed Romeo, follow the self
doubting torment of Hamlet pondering the great questions of life and death, and end the
journey hearing the howling grief of Lear, dying like a child ,stretched on the ground
,beside the hanged body of his wronged daughter, Cordelia
Innes expertly weaves the bards sonnets of romance and hope, cynicism
and dark despair with soliloquies and speeches from Macbeth, Hamlet, Richard II Othello
and more. Within this rich tapestry , delicately interwoven, are Gielguds own
words written to his mother, friends and colleagues as he too makes his way from youth to
his final days .
As with Prospero, the show concludes
Our revels now are ended
our little life is rounded with a sleep
With his(George Innes) excellent new show, "Tribute," he
brings his fine talent to the great roles of Shakespeare, including Hamlet, Romeo, Richard
II, Macbeth and King Lear. In Mr. Innes' skilled hands, famous soliloquies regain their
luminous beauty, poetry and keen insight into human nature. Don't miss this show!
