With James Northcote. In episode two Alex and Jimmy explore their first comedy ‘The Taming of the Shrew’. They compare it to the modern adaptation ‘10 Things I Hate About You’, as well as the musical ‘Kiss Me Kate’. They discuss teenage love, the art of wooing the opposite sex and whether this play is a fun story of flirtation, or a dangerous reminder of a pre- feminism age.
Their guest this week is James Northcote who last month played Lucentio at the Globe’s Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. The show was sadly cancelled due to covid-19. James has starred in films such as ‘The Imitation Game’ and ‘Anna Karenina’ but is most known to fans around the world for his role as Aldhem in Netflix series ‘The Last Kingdom’.
