Subject: Terry Hands' Hamlet in Chicago
Terry Hands' production of Hamlet at the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre
and the Sun-Times' Heidi Weiss gives it a very good review
"The quest is almost always to 'make it new'," she begins, and finds
"Hands' dramatically lit black-and-white production, awash in the pewter
gloom of the sea-swept Danish coast, is not just modern (or 'modernist')
on the surface." She is especially complimentary about Ben Carlson as
the prince. "A very smart, very wintry and very new 'Hamlet'."
