BWW Review: HAMLET, Theatre Royal Windsor Photo BWW Review: HAMLET, Theatre Royal Windsor

The hottest Hamlet on the scene is an octogenarian. But Ian McKellen’s latest stage appearance in Windsor is far from being a geriatric production. In the run up to their opening, McKellen and the company described it as “age blind”, almost an experiment to see how the visual aspect of a Shakespeare play impacts the content. The resulting answer is difficult to pin down. Hamlet’s perceived age changes the dynamics. But also, surprisingly, it ultimately doesn’t matter much.
