The directorial choices and the entire setting - I guess a combination of director (Austin Pendleton) and scenic design (Walt Spangler) was lush, sophisticated, and smart. I won't even begin to analyze it as I have absolutely no idea what anyone else has ever done. I just know I liked it.
So if you're a Shakespeare fan, grab your ticket to Classic Stage's Hamlet and I can almost guarantee you will be transfixed for the entire 3 hours (including one intermission). You may even, like me, get to sit near Jake Gyllenhaal (who's sister Maggie is married to Mr. Sarsgaard)!
