Robert Icke Does Hamlet

This  lead sentence catches the eye

Robert Icke is one of the most important forces in today’s theatre.

And what are his creds?

He blew the dust from Oresteia and made 1984 newly penetrating.

And now he has redone Hamlet.

Hamlet is one of my favorite plays. It is so, so , so dark. Vonnegut gets into this.

The storyline leaves no escape for any of the main characters. Truly gut wrenching.
