CANTING, with an A. (x)
Benedict Cumberbatch (& bonus James Rhodes) at the Letters of Note event.
I do have more photos and of every performer but its late so I’ll put them on my website tomorrow.
It was a superb event. Benedict & Kerry Fox read a number of letters from a signalman Christopher to his love Bessie during the second world war from To the Letter. The letters were romantic (I could visibly see women swooning) and very funny.
Benedict also read this letter from Alan Turing to Norman Routledge
And it was heartbreaking. I was nearly in tears by the time he got to the final paragraph. Which bodes well for The Imitation Game.
Other highlights were Nick Cave reading his own letter to MTV and singing, James Rhodes reading a fantastic letter from Beethoven and playing his music, Juliet Stevenson moving me to tears reading Virgina Woolf’s suicide note, Peter Serafinowicz reading an adorable letter from David Bowie, Gillian Anderson brilliantly funny reading this letter from Dorothy Parker and Colin Salmon beautifully reading the best letter on the site.
