Wherein we discuss that most Dickensian of stage marvels and adaptations, the RSC’s The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.
Friends, several of us, as you know, are enamored of the 1982 filmed stage production of Nicholas Nickleby, and feel it is the ultimate Dickensian experience on stage or screen. So, for those who would like to watch and discuss it, please feel free to do so here, and comment below! If we have enough interest & discussion, I’ll compile a wrap-up specifically for this chat.
The DVD set is available–but very expensive–on Amazon, but it can also be viewed for free in four parts on YouTube. (Thank you for the link, Marnie!)
For those who would like to read my “love letter” to Roger Rees (whose death anniversary was yesterday, 10 July) and to this production, it can be found here.
Our Adaptation Stationmaster’s review can be found here.
Enjoy, friends! See you in the comments!
