A Brilliant New Hamlet

To be a convincing Hamlet or not to be? In the case of actor Christian Caramago, the former. In his review of the New Audience company’s new production of Hamlet for The New York Times, Charles Isherwood praises Caramago’s performance, saying he was “born to play the role.” “[Caramago] nails just about everything. The poetry sings softly. The torment of a divided soul is made achingly clear. The antic spirit and buoyant wit delight. The questing intelligence sends a bright searchlight into the darkness of human experience.”
