Benedict Cumberbath's "Hamlet" Brilliant - But Do We Align With Shakespeare's World View

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

If those masterminds are, it's doubtful if they will go mad. The Sonia Friedman Productions' version of "Hamlet" is compelling. The set is a mixture of contemporary and medieval. Benedict Cumberbath's interpretation is high energy, incorporates body language and facial gestures, and never has one glaze-over moment. So, there's no missing the drama's meme: Evil turns on itself. Like Macbeth, the king, who killed his brother to get the throne, suffers inwardly.
