Subject: 	Terry Hands' Hamlet in Chicago

Terry Hands' production of Hamlet at the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre 
<http://www.chicagoshakes.com/productionDetail.aspx?id=3944>has opened 
and the Sun-Times' Heidi Weiss gives it a very good review 
<http://www.suntimes.com/output/entertainment/cst-ftr-hamlet12.html> 
"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'."

Cheers,
Al Magary
