Hamlet on Broadway

Wow. This was my first live production of Hamlet. I've read it. I've seen the movies. This was definitive. Someday, I'm sure I'll see another production, but I'll always remember the time I saw Jude Law in Hamlet on Broadway. Jude is absolutely stunning - oh yes, he is beautiful, but he is also fearless, foolish, funny, breathtaking. The production is gorgeous - a testament that all you need is brilliant text, light, actors. It only runs until December 6th, so don't wait to go. There's always Shakespeare, but this particular mounting is a must.

...and costumes! don't forget the costumes

Hula Hank! Good to hear from you. I don't think it is necessarily so about costumes, here they are just coordinated street clothes. (I'm sure Roxie would agree with you though and I admit that sometimes it enhances everything.)

Roxie has a fascinating costume plot for"Hamlet" that would blow your mind. Make sure you ask her about it!
