Benedict Cumberbatch: The dream came true … and succeeded.

From August 5 to October 31, 2015 was the exact time when the brilliant British actor Benedict Cumberbatch became the Danish Prince that one day out of the hands inky and prodigious imagination of William Shakespeare and he called “Hamlet“.

Since then, with total deserving much is what has been said about this new theatrical version which caused great excitement even a year before its release, selling out all their tickets in a short time. Since then, with total deserving, much is what has been said about this new theatrical version which caused great excitement even a year before its release, selling out all their tickets in a short time. They expected great things from it and especially of its principal actor who dreamed of playing this character throughout his life. A dream comes true for him and for all the lucky ones who could see him, along with an exceptional cast at the Barbican Theatre.

I must admit that I was one of those privileged to have the opportunity to see and experience, as always when I go to London theatre was unique, intense and magical. All the good things have been said about this version is deserved. I found a display of talent of actors and actresses on stage.

For me the theater is or should be that place where man meets the actor and the actor with the man. A mixture which must be perfect to be able to transmit to the audience every feeling on it. And Benedict Cumberbatch gets it and no doubt. He leaves the skin, sweat, laughter and even tears in a vibrant adaptation which’s what made him to get Best Actor in a Play in WhatsOnStage Awards of this year. Also Benedict Cumberbatch’s Hamlet has received four Oliver Award nominations, including best actor for his portrayal of the Shakespearean prince Hamlet.

This has been a perfect excuse to remember that moment at the Barbican Theatre … watching as the curtain rises and find a Hamlet listening to the song of Nat King Cole: Nature Boy playing on an old record player.
