| Adam Gillen as Mozart is one-note and unendurable
The character of Mozart in 'Amadeus" is one that cries out for a skilled and seasoned actor of nuance, verve, humanity, and layers.

Especially after we've had the award-wining performance of Tom Hulce in the movie, immortalized on film for all time.

With the enormous stable of British talent available, why the National Theatre chose Adam Gillen, and why he was allowed to present a cringe-worthy performance that is like fingernails on a chalkboard, is baffling to me.

Especially when we know actors like Andrew Scott could have done an infinitely better job -- a stellar job, in fact.

I found Adam Gillen's performance unendurable, and had to turn the YouTube video of this off. This is unfortunate, because I really wanted to see how the play differs from the film.
