Unique, Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you are interested in new styles of performances - this is a lip synch, documentary, shadow puppet mash up look at a serious story.

Don't see it if you prefer more mainstream chronological theatre. You are homophobic or not interested in Hamlet Read more

See it if you want an exciting blend of theatre, documentary and cabaret about the greatest play and a legendary production of it.

Time Out London
June 6th, 2023

" ‘Re-member’ me is literally about ‘Hamlet’. But it’s also an exploration of the themes of ’Hamlet’- doubt, death, regret, lives not fully lived... But this funny, poignant, strange show is the best thing I’ve seen on the main stage in years – it would be nice to think this was the turning point."

"Beau proves, with tender magnetism and sheer irrepressible stage craft, that lip syncing is an art form to rival the highest levels of dance and clowning. He is mesmerising: detailed, extremely funny and, when he needs to be, absolutely heartbreaking."

"This is Shakespeare re-formed and reborn. It is a marvel that reminds us, all too acutely, of our own mortality. If Beau wants to be remembered, then this shrewd, eloquent haunting should earn him that right."

"The piece ... has become an attempt to re-member Charleson’s short-lived, poignant achievement; to stitch it back together for people who never saw it, never knew him, described by those who did."

"I may not have fallen in love with Re-Member Me, but there’s no denying its position as a loving tribute and celebration of those who left their legacy in a role, and a bold piece of artistic expression."
