The Ultimate Nerd Version of Hamlet
Hamlet, that scourge of high school students everywhere, has been produced hundreds of times and numerous film versions exist. Even Mel Gibson has difficulty arousing interest in this Shakespearian classic.
Tomorrow night, however, PBS’s Great Performances series is airing a nerdgasm inducing production of Hamlet. Claudius is being played by Patrick Stewart. Yes THAT Patrick Steward, a.k.a. Captain Picard. But that would not be enough to attract the geeks and nerds by itself, so the threw in David Tennant, better known as the 10th Doctor in BBC’s long running Doctor Who. Now you are talking Nerdstock all the way.
This appears to be a pretty full production of the play. I set my DVR and it clocks in at three and a half hours. Check your local listings for air time!
