King Richard Week 2011

King Richard Week 2011 – List of Articles
King Richard Week 2011

Richard Armitage is turning 40!

What to get the man who insists he already has everything?

More work for our favorite workaholic.

Since watching his acting gives us so much delicious fantasy fulfillment, we thought we’d turn the tables with a fantasy present: the job that he’s most repeatedly expressed interest in doing — a retelling of the Richard III story.

We’re not agents or producers, and we can’t finance this project or cast him in it or write the scripts, so we’re doing the next best thing: a week of background, context, musings, and jokes about why we’re dying to see “our” Richard play “that” Richard.

Want to share the fantasy more actively? Sign the manifesto:

Richard III for Richard Armitage !

We hope you enjoy the week!

 

 

– Not the End –

 

As Christine has written in her blog post, due to interfering real life events, not all plans for the King Richard Week worked out and some articles are still to come, not to mention, that the KingRichardArmitage.rgcwp.com website remains active and will publish news and events for you on a regular basis.

We hope you enjoyed the week and will keep on following.

Best wishes,
Your KRA-Team
