Popular actor Benedict Cumberbatch has been playing Hamlet at London’s Barbican Theatre since August. The tickets sold out in a flash.
You can see him tonight at 7 p.m. at several Cineplexe theatres in the Montreal area, in a performance that was captured earlier today. If tonight is not convenient, there will be four encore performances in November.
Since Cumberbatch and his Sherlock character are so popular I expected these screenings to sell out long ago, but it seems that tickets are still available. Many Cumberbatch fans are on record as being ready to listen to him read the phonebook, how much better to hear him recite Shakespeare, as the “melancholy Dane”?
Evidently, there will be many costume changes, too. Hamlet is brought to us via Britain’s National Theatre Live.
