    • 2007 February 18, Ben Brantley, “When Adaptation Is Bold Innovation”, in New York Times[1]:
      More expectedly (and successfully), the Royal Shakespeare Company offers up a “Richard III” that speaks to contemporary fears of the hatreds that breed fascism, with the eponymous crookback played (by the rising young actor Jonathan Slinger) as a festering skinhead who addresses the audience with the complicity of a caveman comic.
