REVIEWS

The novels, by two-time Booker Prize winner Hilary Mantel, won multiple honors and became world-famous, best-selling sensations. The plays sold out at Stratford-upon-Avon and quickly transferred to London, where they received critical raves, broke box office records and triumphed as the West End's biggest hit plays. Now the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of "Wolf Hall Parts One & Two" is on Broadway for a strictly limited engagement! Performed in repertory, this exhilarating story of lust, power and politics will transport audiences to the volatile court of King Henry VIII, where words cut like steel and the shadow of the Tower loomed over all.

----New York Times
Indeed, all the most exciting stuff happens offstage in Jeremy Herrin's efficient Shakespearean staging. You know someone has died when a coffin borne by black-clad monks passes upstage while a light snow falls. A parade of nobles and historical figures march through bearing news and rumors from beyond. Christopher Oram's versatile set provides for these quick entrances and exits while imposing an aura of metal and flame. A rusty steel frame hangs overhead like a cage, ready to trap any of the rats scurrying below. The upstage wall forms a giant Cross of St. George, which Paule Constable and David Plater light in a stunning variety of formations to create distinct places for this play that jumps o'er times with what seems like a cast of thousands.

--------TheaterMania
But the production rides squarely on Cromwell, who rarely leaves the stage in five-plus hours. He’s a blacksmith’s son turned key power player, and the terrific Ben Miles expertly summons the man in full: his tenderness, humor and heartless ambition all in one. Miles reigns in this court.
