242: Gay Actors 5: Punch

in “Punch” 27 January 1971

There was a famous all-male version of “As You Like It” at the National Theatre in 1967, but you can’t expect “Punch” to remember that. Of course, this looks forward to the production of Richard III in Neil Simon’s “The Goodbye Girl” where the director has Richard Dreyfus play the part as a homosexual. Of course, misogyny, pretty boys and “ducky” makes this unmistakeably English.
