IT WAS A TRANSCENDENTAL EXPERIENCE OKAY.
Er. Sorry. But it was. It was absolutely incredible. Not the shirtlessness, I mean, even though he really is wonderfully fit these days and I was not prepared for the fact that he spent a good five minutes almost naked on the stage. The entire play was great. Mark is every bit as good on stage as he is on screen, he has a mindblowing stage presence and the kind of charisma that just fills an entire room, his body language is a thing of beauty, his acting is flawless, and the way he just controls the room around himself is something I’ve never seen before in my life. He’s absolutely flawless and I am in no way exaggerating when I keep insisting that he’s simply the greatest actor of his generation. Period.
I feel like no words could express how impressive that was. I came out of the theatre and was pretty much speechless. And I really hope he’ll do some theatre again in the near future because I would not miss that for the world.
