Here is the “Hamlet” plot description:

David Tennant and Patrick Stewart star in this critically acclaimed production of William Shakespeare’s masterpiece from Britain’s renowned Royal Shakespeare Company. No recent stage production in Britain has attracted the excitement and nearly unanimous critical praise as this “Hamlet”.

Tennant’s interpretation was recognized as defining the role for a generation. Stewart’s complex Claudius won the Olivier Award, which is Britain’s highest stage honor. In this specially shot screen version, which was filmed on location rather than in the theater, Tennant and Stewart reprise their roles. Dynamic, exciting and contemporary, it breathes new life into Shakespeare’s greatest play.

The trailer for BBC’s “Hamlet” can be watched now below.

Tragedy

I enjoy tragedy more because it seems to reflect my life more often than comedy. Although, I do find myself laughing off the some of the sadness.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Star Trek Into Darkness

    CHICAGO – With J.J. Abrams not involved with the creation of a third “Star Trek” movie, a compendium of his work within the franchise only seems fitting. Loaded with special features but only a few new ones, this disc set is a strong choice for those who don’t already have both entertaining blockbusters in their collection.

  • References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot

    CHICAGO – In “References to Salvador Dali Makes Me Hot,” now at the Den Theatre in Chicago through September 7th, the intersect of author José Rivera and the strong cast of actors make for a formidable partnership. Committed and passionate interpreters take both the soft and edgy parts of the narrative to task.
