Creating Art & Sharing Love Since 2009

Some months have passed since then, but I'm still mesmerised by Jude Law's dazzling performance in Shakespeare's play: "Henry V".

2014 LDN travel diary: The Noel Coward Theatre at Leicester Square

 Jude Law brings a presence, humour and life to the play.

The whole cast also deservedly received a standing applause.

What a great stage actor he has become...

I'm sorry I can't translate it to english 'cause
I'm afraid the text can lose its essence..

" (…) Olhos de ressaca? Vá, de ressaca. É o que me dá idéia daquela feição nova. Traziam não sei que fluido misterioso e enérgico, uma força que arrastava para dentro, como a vaga que se retira da praia, nos dias de ressaca. Para não ser arrastado, agarrei-me às outras partes vizinhas, às orelhas, aos braços, aos cabelos espalhados pelos ombros, mas tão depressa buscava as pupilas, a onda que saía delas vinha crescendo, cava e escura, ameaçando envolver-me, puxar-me e tragar-me.
