Don't let the native hue of resolution be sicklied over with the pale cast of thought

Donate to the OTW, get a mug! Manipulation from here. We revisioners and transformative artists have to stick together, after all.

(Hamlet is my favorite play. Notable transformative uses include Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and the lesser-known Kean, by Dumas père, itself reworked by Sartre into a play I adored as a teen; I always did like retellings. Which is also why I will see any production of Hamlet, even if they use a plastic pumpkin to represent the skull.)

..and of course, there's Season 1 of Slings & Arrows, starring OTW fave Paul Gross in the role of a former Hamlet actor, trying to direct a new production of Hamlet under difficult circumstances -- including his ongoing love for the actress who's now playing Gertrude, and his maybe-mad haunting by his former mentor's ghost.

If you haven't seen it, you need to rent it, if only for the season's theme song "Buck Up, Hamlet."
