What is the best Hamlet you ever saw?
What is the worst Hamlet you ever saw?
Answer either of these questions, or both, to enter into a ticket giveaway for a new Off-Broadway production of Shakespeare’s tragedy. Hamlet is playing through July 28th at the Hudson Guild Theater (441 W. 26th Street), with Kyle Knauf in the title role (he’s third from the right in the bottom row of the head shots of the cast):
Alternative question for those who have never seen Hamlet: Why do you want to see it?
Number 1 rule for this contest: Please make sure you label whether you’re talking about the best or the worst Hamlet. To mix up best with worst would be a …tragedy.
Here are the other rules:
1. Please put your answer in the comments at the bottom of this blog post, because the winner will be chosen through Random.org based on the order of your reply, not its content.
But please, please answer the question, explaining why or how it was the best (or worst) Hamlet. (You can talk about the performer playing Hamlet or the entire production or both.) (Or, if you answer the alternative question: Give a reason why you want to see “Hamlet.”)
2. Please include in your answer your Twitter name and follow my Twitter feed at @NewYorkTheater so that I can send you a direct message. (If you don’t have a Twitter name, create one. It’s free.)
3. This contest ends Monday, July 15, 2013 at midnight Eastern Time, and I will make the drawing no later than noon on Tuesday. Please answer within 12 hours, or I’ll have to choose another winner.
