Benedict Cumberbatch returns to the stage for the first time in four years to play the role of Hamlet in London's Barbican theatre. In our favorite high-school required reading Shakespeare play...Cumberbatch is pretty stoked about being the stage again.
This is the first time on stage for him...having already appeared National Theatre's 2011 production of Frankenstein and 50 Years on Stage.
I guess we’ll see if it’s meant to be or not meant to be...Because that’s the question!
Rehearsal images were recently released, and it sure does look like Cumberbatch is having a cumberBLAST. Or a least I hope so.
Well, Cumberbatch, only one piece of advice for you in this role--
This above all: to thine own self be true.
