The show has been kept true to the plays, which will be perfect for some and scare away others. I enjoyed the experienced and exceptionel actors, from Rory Kinnear to Dame Judy Dench. Everyone involved have vast Shakespeare and theatre experience, which shows. Come for the actors, stay for the monologue.
The Hollow Crown is filmed like a play, poetically speaking. The show includes 4 of Shakespeare’s plays; Richard II, Henry IV, Henry IV and Henry V. I found this quite boring to be honest, this show was not for me.
