Staged in Elizabethan dress with Roman accessories and with music played on period instruments, Dominic Dromgoole's Globe production is "fleet, urgent, exciting and dangerous" (Financial Times), combining "freshness of acting" (Daily Telegraph) with an expert use of theatre crowd and space the stylishly underscores Shakespeare's thrilling dissection of politics in action.
