Five Things to do in UAE This Week!
Check Out Richard III at Almeida Theatre
Almeida Theatre is screening the critically acclaimed Richard III live from the stage in London. The show will be filmed using multiple cameras around the stage to ensure you get the same experience as the live audience so there isn’t a single bad seat in the house! Plus Ralph Fiennes is playing the lead. Yes, RAPLH FIENNES. If you don’t know who he is, he’s the same man who played Voldemort from Harry Potter, M. Gustave from The Grand Budapest Hotel and Coriolanus from, well, Coriolanus! Plus, he’s like a regular on the James Bond franchise. If he’s playing the lead, you definitely get an idea of how amazing the cast can be. Theatre geeks can’t miss this one!
