Thursday 18 June 1998
STEVEN BERKOFF (right) brings his latest one-man show to the West End. Berkoff will take centre stage with a white spotlight thrust upon his expressive face. He is to explore the darkness in Shakespeare's baddies in "Shakespeare's Villains; a Masterclass in Evil". It should appear less Berkoff miming and more Iago, Mr and Mrs Macbeth and Hamlet all nattering at once.
