In this barnstorming production, Jude Law approaches the role of Hamlet with the focus and adrenaline level of an Olympic track competitor

I saw this in London with the the same cast except for Gertrude and thought it excellent. So much so, I've tickets to see it again on Broadway in October.

Hey Jude,

Jude Law is a flawless Hamlet. Great production in NY. I do recommend it. Our seats were front row, amazing to be so close to Mr. Law.

Fantastic Play great cast,
Sep 22, 2009
reviewer: from Cottage Grove, MN
I have never been to a play before from Shakespeare, it was totally enjoyable and entertaining. I understood what was happening on stage and enjoyed it to the max. I am wondering if they dress any different on opening night, as I went in Sept. I love Jude as an actor and he is great on stage and took time to greet his fans after the play.

 

Wonderful performance Jude!

Moved beyond words,
Dec 30, 2009
reviewer: 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.

Jude's Delicious Thanksgiving,
Nov 30, 2009
reviewer: 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!
