A June 2014 photo made available by Cornershop PR showing Lucy Briggs-Owen as Viola with members of the company. A hit. A very palpable hit. So says a character in the new West End production "Shakespeare in Love," quoting "Hamlet." And so say most London critics about the big-budget stage version of the Tudor-set rom-com that charmed its way to seven Academy Awards in 1998. On Thursday, July 24, 2014 critics showered the play with accolades that will make producers' ad campaign a dream. The Evening Standard's Henry Hitchings praised the play's "fizzy, infectious exuberance," while the Daily Telegraph's Charles Spencer said it "generates a glow you could warm your hands by." Paul Taylor in The Independent topped them all: "It makes you feel grateful to be alive." Adapted by Lee Hall _ and co-produced by Disney, whose backing has helped fund a large-scale production with a 28-strong cast _ the play sticks close to the film’s plot.
