Reviews of David Tennant in Richard II at The Barbican Centre, London
David Tennant - Richard II

On Thursday 12th December 2013 The Royal Shakespeare Company held the London Press Night for Richard II after three preview performances in London following 40 performances in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Below is a collection of the reviews.

There was also a Press Night in Stratford in October 2013.


Daily Express gives a 5 star review for Richard II and includes 'Tennant still glorious at the Barbican Theatre.' Updated 22/12

Evening Standard's 4 star review of Richard II starts with 'David's mercurial central turn in this knotty play offers a timely reminder of that, as does his accomplished delivery of some of the most exquisite poetry in all of Shakespeare. "I wasted time, and now doth time waste me" is, for my money, the most haunting line in the histories and Tennant doesn't waste a syllable.' Updated 13/12

The Mirror's review of Richard II includes ''Tennant's performance is magnificent.' Updated 13/12

Metro gives Richard II 4 stars in its review and mentions there are 'many splendid things about the RSCís production.' Updated 13/12

The Londonist review of Richard II says 'It is, quite simply, brilliant. ' Updated 13/12

The Arts Desk review of Richard II has the sub-title 'David Tennant reasserts his Shakesperean credentials with a fine Richard II. But this is more than a one-man show.' Updated 13/12

OfficialLondonTheatre.co.uk's review of Richard II includes 'Then there is Tennant. While Richardís power diminishes, the actor only grows stronger, evoking the playís poetry through both the fluidity of his movements and the compelling nature of his speeches in which he takes every rhyming couplet and places it centre stage with effortless delivery.' Updated 13/12

A 3 star review of Richard II from What's On Stage concludes with 'his is a beautifully clear rendition of Shakespeare's most poetic play: the verse is superbly handled with some judicially sprinkled comic touches, but while there are some superb central performances, it never quite gets to the heart of the central question of what it means to be a king.' Updated 13/12

The Upcoming has a 5 star review of Richard II which includes 'David Tennant shines.' Updated 13/12

Hackney Citizen has a new review of Richard II which includes the phrases 'David Tennant is a brilliant Richard II' and 'The production follows an acclaimed run in Stratford and marks a new tie-up between the RSC and the Barbican for which this sets a very high standard.' Updated 9/1

The Richard II review by Sardines Magazine concludes with 'Tennant struts, cries, sneers throws himself on the ground, derides, comforts and looks magnificent when lowered enthroned on a traverse gantry. It is a remarkable performance which will undoubtedly go down in the annals of theatre history.' Updated 13/12
