I have seen David Tennant on stage now already three times. Twice in the same week when I went to Stratford-upon-Avon when he was doing Hamlet and Love’s labour’s lost, and then a few years later when he and Catherine Tate did Much Ado about Nothing. It seems that he’s doing theatre every 2 years or so and last time he did it, I didn’t go since I was a little scared of going to the Barbican on my own (fear conquered when I went to see Benedict Cumberbatch in Hamlet and it’s an irrational fear since I had heard stories of being a city in the city and that you could get lost there). For that play in the Barbican (Richard II) I do have the DVD but I have to admit I haven’t seen it yet.
When it was announced that David was going to be on stage again, I didn’t have to think twice and by coincidence, the day I found out and the day that the tickets became available was the same day. I asked my theatre loving friend if she wanted to join me to see this play and well, David is kind of popular so I got a “Hell yes” within minutes. She also said that it’s kinda meta that Casanova would be playing Don Juan.
