See it if You love Shakespeare, if you want to be immersed into the world and life of Hamlet and Denmark and if you appreciate great acting and design
Don't see it if You don't like Shakespeare or if you can't be engaged for a long period of time.
See it if You love Shakespeare, want to see Hamlet performed in its entirety and are tired of the play being hacked to pieces.
Don't see it if You have only a passing interest in Shakespeare or don't think you can sit for 4 hours.
"This production of 'Hamlet,' running unabridged, and at over four hours with two intermissions, is a very good case study in how even Shakespeare's writings benefit from the usual judicious edits. But beyond the run time, the production stands on solid legs...Steeped in the Meisner technique, the cast, under the direction of DeSotelle, react to one another with vitality and, when they lock eyes on the audience doing their soliloquies, they bring an immediacy to the centuries-old verse."
