Dear SHAKSPEReans,

An Irish friend just informed me of a production of Hamlet he's seen recently that featured two actors in the lead role -- i.e., dividing the role between them in a single production. I'm not sure of the details, i.e., how it was divided up, but has anyone heard of this being done before?

Thanks,
Hannibal
