The Dresser – Duke of York
Caught a Duke of York production of the Dresser. A Lear in a Lear — this one covers an aging, ailing Shakespearan actor and his Dresser who finds ways to propound and motivated him for the show of the evening. Ken Stott and Reece Shearsmith come together as lead actor “Sir” and Norman “The Dresser” –both giving some stellar performances. The laughs don’t get in the way of a tragic build up to an expected end. This one is about a spent actor and his band. 5 stars.
