Livestream Iliad reading

When I woke up this morning, I read something interesting on my homepage: The Almeida Theatre in London was doing an all day reading event of the The Iliad with over 60 different performers. AND for those that aren't able to attend, it is livestreamed on their website. I don't normally livestream anything, especially with such a commitment, but I went over there and began with hour 5 of 16. Not sure how far I'm going to go, as I do have work today, but I'll see how far I make it!

Anyone who sees this today and wants to check it out: http://almeida.co.uk/iliad-digital

I believe I missed the "favourite" book of the tale: The inventory of the ships. Don't remember specifically which book it is, but it's somewhere in the beginning. It is a long, detailed account of all the ships and their inventories and the number of people on each and so on and so forth. There are many discussions and reasons about why this is included, but it a bit tedious, and, at times, quite boring to read... kind of like reading Leviticus in the bible. I would've loved to have seen someone read that....

Anyway, I saw Simon Russell Beale already, and I may or may not have seen Bertie Carvel (it's hard to tell, as I've only really seen him in makeup).
