Paul Taylor reviews The Shawshank Redemption for The Indepenent – and whilst he says that the transition from film to stage is not an easy one for this production, he has some good words to say.
In the role of Red, the excellent Reg E Cathey (of Wire fame) has Morgan Freeman’s twinkle and rumbling, gravelly strength. Whether leading the prisoners in song after the unlooked-for grace of a bottle of beer or bravely raising his arms to embrace an uncertain post-prison future, he holds the evening together with his moving, unforced dignity.
