I'm surprised by all the positive reviews of this play as it bored me to death. Maybe because it's the 3rd Henry V I've seen in the past 6 weeks and by far the least creative and with the fewest fresh insights.

Furthermore, the costumes felt like something from an school play and I found myself trying to kill the lute player on the upper balcony with my eyes.

After the amazing Globe to Globe run, I have officially rejoined the ranks of those who write The Globe off as a crappy tourist trap.
