The Null Device


Last night I went to see a show named HamLET: Definitions, at the Planet Cafe; I heard of it because Dandelion Wine were doing some of the music (namely some 17th-century tunes, of which they did a sterling job). It was reasonably entertaining, consisting of about six short miniplays riffing off Hamlet. Some were essentially remixes of Shakespeare's (and Stoppard's) works, and others were different; infamous lefty pie-thrower Duff got up at one stage and did a rant about Hamlet, which was mildly amusing, and the end number (which consisted of the various players performing a Hamlet-themed version of Frank Sinatra's I Did It My Way, complete with cheesy disco dancing) was very entertaining.
