From the show:
Academy Award nominee® Ruth Negga makes her “mesmerizing” American theatrical debut with a passionate, critically acclaimed portrayal, featuring an ensemble of leading Irish actors. Under Yaël Farber’s direction, focus shifts from anguish and identity to the power of resistance.
See it if you think that there is something intriguing about a woman playing Hamlet There is nothing new except unnecessary filler dialogue. Tedious
Don't see it if You are looking for either a different take on the motivation or a brilliant portrayal of the characters. There is neither here. Pedestrian
See it if You want to see a luminous performance by Ruth Negga almost obscured by cluttered and cliched staging/supporting cast.
Don't see it if You want visual coherence, you don't like unnecessary sexual violence imagery that doesn't have a CW for some reason, trump imagery.
