Just a little tid bit: on the Chris Evans breakfast show Patrick Stewart said last Friday that the production of "No Man's Land" with Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud was his favourite theatre performance of all time: apparently he went to see it three times in the week that it opened... :shock:

Does anyone know what age MK was when he attended RADA? Is RADA eqivalent to high school (about 13 to 18 in the US), or did he go there after high school. Just curious

I believe that Mr K entered RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) some time in 1967, Amiga, which was after he had left school. Between leaving school and entering RADA, he was with a theatre company based at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry.

Yeah, but in MK's case, Dorian Gray has aged very nicely, thank you. :thumbsup:
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

As you may have discovered, click once you are there on Michael Kitchen's name, and you can see many other shots of him from that stage production.
