This has got to be the best 6.5 minutes in BBC History, especially for a Geeky Anglophile Shakespeare Buff like me. OMG I laughed so hard and for so long. Roared, even. The neighbors must love me.
This was from the RSC’s Shakespeare Live broadcast last night on BBC2 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of that Sweet Swan of Avon’s death. He was only 52 when he died in 1616. Even younger than Prince.
I think it is time for a ginger Hamlet the Dame. Indeed.
