Richard Armitage: Above the Title in The Crucible at The Old Vic, April 29, 2014 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #556)

My screen capture below displays the talented British actor Richard Armitage’s name above the title for The Old Vic’s production of The Crucible where he will portray the tormented John Proctor.  This crediting placement above the title says it all in terms of Richard Armitage’s elevated status as a theatrical artist.  Bravo!


Thanks to Nellbe64, RAC and others for retweeting The Old Vic page link showing the update!


P.S. Here is the link to my earlier post about The Crucible being performed in the round.


About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    It must be gratifying to one’s own name top of the bill. Well deserved. I hope he won’t crack under the pressure ;-)

      *to see one’s name – grah


    • Hi Guylty,
      I agree about RA having his name above the title being gratifying! Goosebumps!
      And as to Richard Armitage cracking under pressure? I doubt it–probably just a wonderful buzz of energetic excitement. Afterall, this is a man who has had near drowning moments and dislikes water, but he has roles that constantly put him in water and he faces that challenge–Guy, Lucas, Porter, Heinz, and Thorin. Snap! At least with this Proctor role, he’ll be dry. Ha!
      Thanks for visiting and commenting! Cheers! Grati ;->
