    " Life is too short to read boring stuff. This was really boring. I get that Shakespeare was trying to make a point here, with the parallels between King John and his father, Henry II, and with Queen Elizabeth and her father, Henry VIII, but still, that's no excuse for a boring play. He stuck too closely to history and didn't give any glimpse of the personalities at work behind the story. Not worth reading. "

    " The ironic running commentary by Falcounbridge and the florid histrionics of Constance redeem the lack of focus in this overcrowded, awkwardly constructed play---that is, redeem it on the page; I do not know if they could save it in performance. "
