“Foster’s Herod is sublime. At first he is Caligula, whose kohl-lined eyes seem to offer
only bottomless debasement, with a lewd look for every slave that crosses his path.
But he is also genuinely royal…He effortlessly straddles the comic and tragic…
His relationship with Salome is as complex as it is absurdly funny…”
