Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1055 Re: Peter Brook's Hamlet

I saw only excerpts from the Peter Brook production, along with an
interview, on Charlie Rose. It didn't make me eager to go. From what I
could tell, Brook's love for the actor gets identified with his love for
the character. This appears to be a Hamlet who can do no wrong. Like
David Warner's 60s student-rebel Hamlet, he's a pure soul whose anger is
always justified. Did anyone who's seen it get another impression?

Best wishes,
David Bishop
