Yay Jude! Sorry.
Jude Law as turned doubters into believers from audiences and critics alike for his performance in Hamlet in London. Law received whistles and cheers at a production of Hamlet in which he plays the title role. Law mouthed “thank you” at the audience for their reception.
Law played the role with a lightness of touch that raised laughter in the right places. His “to be or not to be” speech was delivered amid a backdrop of falling snow.
Doctor Who star David Tennant recently played Hamlet in a critically acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Company production.
Law, aged 36, was recently quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying: “Hamlet is a bit like a great song that’s been covered by a load of different singers.” He said it was a part he had always wanted to play adding: “Every job is a little daunting. This is a little more daunting than others.”
Daily Telegraph critic Charles Spencer said, “the evening firmly belonged to Law, who joins the modern pantheon of spellbinding sweet princes with a performance of rare vulnerability and emotional openness.”
It’s glad to see Jude’s talents finally making more noise that his conquests.
