Bliss

I'm just back from a week in England, where I succeeded in seeing (*deep breath*) David Tennant's Hamlet.

Um.

There are no words.

First hearing that he was going to be playing Hamlet for the RSC, we knew that he would be perfect. After all, he has proved in Doctor Who that he's amazing at being angry and sad and conflicted and a bit mad and everything Hamlet should be. "He's like fire and ice and rage. He's like the night and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever. He burns at the centre of time and can see the turn of the universe. And... he's wonderful."

And Patrick Stewart was Claudius, which, also, squee. Under normal circumstances, this would be the big thing to squee about, but while his Claudius was very very good, David Tennant's Hamlet was a revelation. Also, maybe I'm a bit obsessed with him. But there's nothing wrong with that, right? Right?

So, anyway, I think my life is now complete.

THE WORLD WOULD EXPLODE FROM PERFECTION.

Yes it would. But we'd all go up happy.

My dear brother, you know you will be drilled about the performance when I see you. Must try to know all the nuances of the acting! Be ready for much talking at PF Changs. Haha!

I got to the theater at 4 AM the day of the performance to queue for tickets. They have 10 £5 tickets for 16-25-yr-olds, plus returns. The day I was there, I was third in line, and there weren't that many other people before around 6, but apparently for the previous performance, at least one person slept out, and a bunch more arrived at 4/5 AM. The person just behind us in the queue when we went had gotten there around 6 that day, and was like 12th, but did get in.

I wouldn't be surprised in Love's were a little easier to get into.
