Customer Review

VINE VOICEon February 5, 2006
A play by William Shakespeare. The story is of the decision and indecision of the Prince of Denmark, Hamlet, he is informed of an evil deed "Murder most foul" by the ghost of his father. The perpetrators are his uncle and mother who remarry before the funeral meats are cold. How will Hamlet cope and are there further plots against him?

Just as when you think about the Ten Commandments, you think of Charlton Heston as Moses in "The Ten Commandments" (1956). Everyone knows that Hamlet looks like Laurence Olivier. There are longer and flashier versions out now, many quite good however this is the one that will always come to mind. I will not attempt to interpret the meaning behind the story however most of the acting and all of the words are quite clear. If you are afraid of misinterpreting the play, take a course on it. Otherwise this will play stands on its own merit and you will be fascinated.
