Review of play
Juliette Scotia from Canada
12 June 2006
This is a video filmed version of the play Hamlet that was performed in
Vancouver. I liked it a lot. Especially Megan Morrison as Gertrude and
Elias Toufexis as Hamlet. It got some really good reviews too.
"Elias Toufexis's fresh interpretation of the title role is this
Spectral Theatre production's chief pleasure. Toufexis makes a clear
decision that Hamlet's apparent madness is a strategic performance.
When the ghost of Hamlet's father tells him that he was murdered, this
Prince is in such a state of agitated shock that his refusal to relay
to Horatio what he has just heard makes sense; the information is too
overwhelming to share, too shattering to express or act upon directly.
Toufexis turns the familiar verse into credible human speechsometimes
urgent, and sometimes, like when he greets his university chums,
" Megan Morrison is a star in the making "
