So let me tell you what happened when I met Arthur Darvill last night…
Me: Hi! I loved the show!
Arthur: Oh thanks so much!
Me: Um… would you sign… *shows Arthur my Rory action figure*
Arthur: Oh my god, it’s little me! *takes action figure* Yeah, I’ll sign it, but only if I can sign my arse.
Me: That’d be great!
Why, this is hell, nor am I out of it.
Think’st thou that I, who saw the face of God
And tasted the eternal joys of heaven,
Am not tormented with ten thousand hells
In being deprived of everlasting bliss?
I don’t know what this is, but I want all of it.
It’s from the Globe’s production of Doctor Faustus, with Arthur Darvill as Mephistopheles. And you can get it! It’s available on DVD and apparently also on Amazon Instant Video. It’s definitely worth it — the acting is terrific and the staging is utterly amazing.
Oh Darvs, never change.
