About the Show
Sam Mendes directs the West End transfer of Jack Throne's play about Burton and Gielgud’s Hamlet.
Stage & screen superstar Richard Burton is set to play the titular role in an experimental version of Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' on Broadway, directed by the scrupulous Sir John Gielgud. As rehearsals progress, these two titans of the entertainment world clash, unveiling the tumultuous relationship between art and celebrity.
This play by Jack Thorne ('Harry Potter and the Cursed Child') offers a glimpse into the politics of the rehearsal room and stars Johnny Flynn ('Lovestruck') as Richard Burton, and Mark Gatiss ('Sherlock') as John Gielgud.
