For anyone involved with theater, Shakespeare seems universal. However, he also can feel over done, wordy, or boring. Regardless, theater goers and actors alike will never stop obsessing over him and thus, Shakespeare will always have a presence on Broadway.

Mike Bartlett's King Charles III opens, as the house lights dim slowly, with the foreseeable news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II. From there it builds a dark tapestry with an acerbic wit and a cleverness geared only for Britons and Anglophiles.

What more need be said? It is, yes, as good as you've heard. What a shame that the ticket situation will keep it out of the reach of the general theatergoing public for another year or three.
