Hamlet in London


Andrew Scott

You love Andrew Scott? Tick. You adore Shakespeare? Tick. Hamlet is back in the West End, this time with Andrew Scott in the starring role as the ill-fated Danish prince. It's a fresh new revival of Shakespeare's classic tragedy, beautifully adapted and directed by Robert Icke, and it transfers to the West End's Harold Pinter Theatre from 9th June 2017.

Talented Irishman Andrew Scott is probably best known for his compelling role as the evil Moriarty in TV's Sherlock. Now he's taking on the ever-challenging role of Hamlet in a brand new production. He has recently wowed audiences in The Dazzle at Found111, Birdland at the Royal Court Theatre and Design for Living at the Old Vic Theatre. His villainous role in the James Bond film Spectre, playing the wicked Max Denbigh, was absolutely brilliant. And his Olivier Award for 'A Girl in a Car with a Man', won for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre, was very well deserved.

Scott is the sell-out star of the show, and he's working with some extremely talented actors for this production. The cast includes Barry Aird, Elliot Barnes-Worrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Marty Cruickshank, Calum Finlay, Joshua Higgott, Amaka Okafor, Daniel Rabin, David Rintoul, Juliet Stevenson, Luke Thompson, Peter Wight, Angus Wright and Matthew Wynn. Costume and set design is by Hildegard Bechtler, lighting design comes from Natasha Chivers, the sound from Tom Gibbons and video by Tal Yarden.

The Director, Robert Icke, is Associate Director at the Almeida theatre in Islington, known and respected for its innovative approach to new and classic dramas. He has adapted a host more exceptional pieces of work over the years including Mary Stuart, Uncle Vanya, Oresteia and 1984, which ended up taking national, international and West End tours. He has also directed some legendary classics including The Odyssey and The Iliad.

This is one of The Bard's best-loved and most powerful plays. It runs for a full four hours with two intervals. The time flies by as you sit, captivated, watching the action unfold. If this is your first time seeing Hamlet live on stage, you're in for a huge treat. The same goes if you've seen it before. This one never loses its powerful appeal. Don't miss it.

Uneven and puzzling

Andrew Scott's performance was good and could have been great with a stronger supporting cast. Except for Andrew (who was admittedly hard to hear at times), the diction and the caliber of the acting was poor and made us sad.

Best Production of Hamlet Ever

This was the most unique and best staging of Hamlet we have ever experienced -- and it was an experience. The Ensemble was just that -- while Andrew Scott was the "Star" and draw, every single actor gave an equally powerful performance.

Deeply moving, the delivery of line was sublime. Looked the camera work.

Loved the different take on the original. The setting was fabulous bring right up to the modern day. So much easier to follow. Andrew Scott was a fabulous Hamlet.

This production gives a totally new insight to one of Shakespeare's best known plays, something which I wouldn't have thought could be done. Andrew Scotts Hamlet is outstanding. PLEASE turn off your mobiles!! Three went off during this performance, one during 'to be or not to be...'It is a tribute to the actors that they managed to overcome the interruptions.

Totally Immersive! Completely Outstanding!

I've seen this twice now - completely overwhelming portrayal of Hamlet's deep distress at the murder of his father and his paranoia about who he can trust! Fabulous use of mixed media and Bob Dylan's music. Robert Icke is a genius and Andrew Scott is awesome to behold!

A beginners guide to Hamlet

Hamlet - Almeida - Andrew Scott With the Almeida’s acclaimed production of Hamlet about to transfer to the West End there’s never been a better time for first timers to discover this fascinating play.

Some people are intimidated by the prospect of Shakespeare’s dense text and this production is nearly four hours long, but don’t be. There’s seldom been a production that’s clearer and easier to follow than this one plus you get to see one of our best young actors, Andrew Scott (Moriarty in TVs Sherlock) at his best.
