Franco was quite unlike other director I had ever worked for. I was used to them being down in the stalls, and asking you to make a certain move from out there. He rehearsed the scenes wit h Romeo and Juliet separately from the rest of the cast, and would tell us what to do, and you would be doing it, and suddenly he would be doing it beside you, which was a bit off – putting because he was better than either of us.
Judi Dench despre Franco Zeffirelli, in perioada in care au lucrat impreuna la Romeo si Julieta la Old Vic in Londra. prima montare dupa Shakespeare a lui Zeffirelli.
am cumparat ieri de la libraria Royal National Theatre si citesc Judi Dench and furthermore, autobiografia acestei minunate actrite care are relaxarea sa povesteasca cum la o piesa a uitat replica (era formata din nume de orase italiene) si a pus in locul lor toate numele de mincaruri italiene pe care le stia.
