It is Inevitable, Mr Ibsen
Last night we went to see Hedda Gabbler at the BAM, a performance by the Sydney Theatre Company featuring both Cate Blanchett (Hedda) and Hugo Weaving (Judge Brack). It was, to say th e least, absolutely amazing even from up in the nosebleed seats. The set was stunning – as was the lighting, and everyone’s performances just shone. Plus, in the final climax as Judge Brack attempts to blackmail Hedda into an affair Hugo Weaving says ‘inevitable’ in a decidedly Agent Smith manner. Brillant.
