Martin Shaw stars
Gore Vidal's political drama first debuted on Broadway all the way back in 1960 but it is only till now, 2018, that The Best Man has come to the West End stage. TV favourite, Martin Shaw stars as Presidential hopeful, William Russell, but what did the critics think?
'Vidal's play is as relevant as ever - and delicious light relief' - Radio Times
' Formally, this is a traditional, old-fashioned play. But Vidal has a spiky awareness of the insidious brutality of politics' - The Guardian
'Shaw does a very solid job as the dignified Russell' - The Stage
