Got a very, very good review from Michael Billington, the doyen of
British theatre critics, but the production was less highly thought of.
Will be on Guardian Unlimited I imagine.

I'll have to miss this one, but I did catch Maloney as Hamlet at the
Yorkshire playhouse in 1996. That production was amazing also,
especially in its intelligent handling of Ophelia's madness. When she
was seen for the first time, her appearance was perfect. As she
degenerated, her hair, makeup, and clothing evolved into total disarray.
Of special note were her stockings which were shredded by the time
Laertes returns.

Maloney's Hamlet was stuck in the third phase of grief and unable to
move on to acceptance. It was a dynamic performance with many shadings.
Great to watch and wonderful to remember.

Janet
