After being interpreted by different great actors in the past century, the ghost of Shakespeare’s suffering Danish prince somehow picked Jude Law as his facade in 2009, aiming to get young audiences back from Facebook and PS2.
The 12-week successful performances in London from May to August proved Mr. Law, a key role to attract young audiences, is a perfect choice.
As a break before moving to Broadway in mid-September, he and the other cast members, including Guru Mbatha-Raw as Ophelia, are now playing at Hamlet’s homeland - Kronborg Castle in Elsinore, Denmark. The 6-week performance even had the presence of the real-life prince of Denmark, Frederik, on the opening night.
Jude Law is no stranger to the stage. His theater experience includes "’Tis Pity She’s a Whore” and “Dr. Faustus.”
