Jude's Delicious Thanksgiving, Nov 30, 2009
reviewer: Jojofromrichmond from Nellysford, VA USA
Mr. Law devoured the boards one at a time like a tasty feast, with a physicality that was mesmerizing. Is it possible for hair to act? All right, I am a Jude Law fan, and no particular scholar of the Bard, but for one night was transported to Elsinore and the lure of its secrets and duplicity. The cast danced the noble dance with Hamlet, but ultimately, t'was the Prince of Denmark who brought emotions to the brink. Woe is me!

Very disappointing and boring!, Nov 30, 2009
reviewer: Tammy from Connecticut, USA
Just saw this show on Saturday and what a disappointment! Spoken in Old English and very hard to understand or follow. The Broadhurst theater is very tight with very small seats and the row in front of you hits your knees. I am a small person at 5 feet and 130 pounds. I dont know how someone who is bigger would fit. The theater was freezing! at intermission they have the whole theater go down to the basement to attempt to use the bathroom in 15 minutes. It was like hearding cattle and the line was so long there was no way everyone was able to use the bathroom in that time after they pump everyone with drinks. Jude was good but the performance was extremely boring and long. I was falling asleep and so was my boyfriend. We were both very disappointed after spending a lot of money on these tickets-you would expect to at least be comfortable in the theater. The staff is rude constantly yelling about cell phones being on-we get it-NO CELL PHONES!

Moved beyond words, Dec 30, 2009
reviewer: Brenda Allen from Celebration, Florida
I have been an English teacher for 34 years (so you can imagine the intense relationship I have had with Hamlet!!), but I can honestly say that I have never been as moved by a live performance as I was by that of Jude Law. The minute I saw that he was to perform Hamlet at your theater, I purchased tickets. I planned my entire Thanksgiving vacation around that day. It went beyond my wildest dreams. As his heart broke, so did mine. When he wept, so did I. The performance that Mr. Law did was so real, so authentic, so perfect to Shakespeare. It will be with me for the rest of my life. Please send him my most sincere thank you.
