Sometimes Something Wonderful
All Bloggers tend to be people who are comfortable wandering around the internet looking for stuff and nonsense. They blog; they are on Facebook; they have an acount on You Tube; and they TWEET. One of the nice things about Twitter is that the famous mix with the hoi paloi that they may or may not follow. Have I lost you yet with the follow or not follow? Well today, David Tennant let the twitterers know that Grat Performances has posted Hamlet on line.
Now David Tennant is best known in the US for several seasons as the tenth Doctor Who, and I will admit to being an addict to Doctor Who though the Eleventh seems to be turning out well. Today on Twitter he showed his chops as an ACTOR and why he was so good as Doctor Who with a little number for the Royal Shakespear Company as the title character in HAMLET on PBS Great Performances shown on Wednesday and now on line for several years at: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/episodes/hamlet/watch-the-film/980/
You will now be able to bring your children to see Shakespeare as Shakespear was meant to be done even in a modern setting with 17th century language. If you want to see some of the more sensational scenes go here http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/04/28/david-tennant-patrick-stewart-hamlet/
Either way or either link ... The slings and arrows await not to mention sleep perchance to dream or shuffliling off the mortal coil ....Go get greatness.
