NT Live: Hamlet
Since Benedict Cumberbatch isn't getting enough exposure right now, why not check him out in a live production of the National Theatre's Hamlet. In what is supposed to be one of the finest Hamlet stagings of the 21st century, Cumberbatch is receiving rave reviews as Shakespeare's most disturbed lead from his finest show. This should be required viewing for Shakespeare fans and Cumberbuns alike!
