Just Seen Hamlet

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet : One Thread

I just came in some 10 minutes ago. I went to see a production of Hamlet in the Greenwich Theatre Gardens in London. My God, it was SHIT. Myself, and my excellent good friend, Sarah, left at the interval, which occured after III.iii. I had no desire to stay for the ten minute intermission and watch my favourite scene of the play - the closet scene. We just had to get away. My ticket was thankfully only six pounds. Less than my train fare. Bye!

Whew! So sorry to hear that, Patrick! Man, there is nothing worse than a bad Hamlet, eh? As someone who saw the Kent U. production last year, I sympathise. That was a total load of crap, that was.

Go on - give the gory details! How shitty was it?!
