Amazing how many scenes from Hamlet you can find on YouTube... But I love this one. Carefree, hormones raging, the pure joy of theater...

It could be an early draft by the bard or it could be a blatant rip-off, but throughout history it has been called the “bad quarto.” This fast-paced, action-packed production proves that “it ain’t necessarily so!” Half the length of the better-known play, this version crystallizes the famous story of murder, madness, love and betrayal. It is performed by an agile ensemble of 7 actors playing multiple roles, including the actress playing Hamlet’s mother doubling as a “butoh” inspired Ghost of Hamlet’s father. Performed uncut, this is a great version of one of the greatest of plays!
