McKellen STILL playing Hamlet (at age 82) – Willy Wigglestick

McKellen to reprise function of Hamlet at Edinburgh Fringe

I’ve learn a number of instances about Sir Ian’s causes for playing Hamlet at his age: performing is all about playing one thing you’re not, younger actors play previous characters on a regular basis, and so on. But I’m nonetheless unsure that I purchase the entire thing. I imply, McKellen is a nice actor, everybody is aware of that. But I really feel as if my keen suspension of disbelief has limits. I do know many glorious feminine actors have performed Hamlet lately, and I’ve seen a few these. One I preferred quite a bit, and the opposite I didn’t like practically as a lot.

I must ponder this a bit extra earlier than I can actually determine the place I stand. I’d love to listen to from anybody who thinks that is an superior concept. (Or when you assume it’s ridiculous, let me know that, too…)

If you want what you’ve learn right here, why not present your appreciation with a small contribution? Thanks!
