After ‘Hamlet’ and ‘King Lear,’ Where Else Can Paapa Essiedu Go?
LONDON — No one from the Royal Shakespeare Company was sure if Paapa Essiedu would have time for an interview recently. He was busy rehearsing the title role in “Hamlet” while also preparing for “King Lear,” in which he is playing Edmund alongside Antony Sher.
Both productions were about to travel to the United States: “King Lear” runs through April 29 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and “Hamlet” arrives at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., on May 2. But eventually Mr. Essiedu was able to find a time to talk, between the cool-down from one play and the warm-up for the other. He wasn’t being difficult; this was just how it was.Daily Mail:
