Is Roundhouse A Mistake For Royal Shakespeare Co?

So the Royal Shakespeare Company is taking up residence in London’s Roundhouse. “Certainly the Roundhouse has a long and honourable history of staging theatre, but when the RSC was there back in 2002 with a season of Shakespeare’s late plays it got its fingers burned as audiences stayed away in droves. The refurbished Roundhouse is a truly beautiful building, but so far in my experience it has proved itself an infinitely better venue for bands and circus than it is for theatre.”
