Currently watching Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet. Haven't actually seen it for years.



Yup. Brian Vaughn was better.



(I'll do a real update tomorrow, promise. :) )

Take a look at this article about Brian Vaughn's Hamlet, which I discovered by doing a Google News search for "Brian Vaughn."

Luckily, I'm not alone in thinking he's one of the best Hamlets ever. :)

Hoping to go back for one last performance on Labor Day weekend. Even if I have to go alone.

Guess where I'm posting from? A hotel room in Cedar City, of course! My intimidation/brainwashing campaign against my family worked, and we're taking a short trip to Cedar City to enjoy Shakefest 2006 before the summer season ends.

Today, we saw a matinee of HMS Pinafore (which was just as entertaining as last time) and an evening performance of Room Service. (Video montage, large and small).

Oh my heck, you guys. I laughed myself sick. And Brian Vaughn is now my official Theatre Boyfriend. He joins Orlando Bloom as my Movie Boyfriend and Henry Tilney as my Fiction Boyfriend. Anyway, this is the first time I've seen him in a non-Shakespeare role, and I was just as impressed as I have been previously. The guy can do comedy. Really do comedy. The plot for Room Service is rather thin, but Brian (as my Theatre Boyfriend, I get to call him by his first name ;) ) and the rest of the cast squeeze every little bit out of it they can. The physical comedy is just as fun as the verbal stuff, if not more so. And really, the whole play's worth it for the curtain call. Did you ever see an entire stage of mostly-middle-aged men do the time step? If you haven't, you're missing out.

My family is still chuckling about it. :)

Hamlet tomorrow night. Can't. Wait. I hope we figure out something to do tomorrow to keep me occupied, or I'm going to be jumping out of my skin.

So, I'm at the Shakespearean Festival, right? One would expect great Shakespeare plays. I've been before, and seen what these people can do. I was entertained by The Merry Wives of Windsor, but frankly, Antony and Cleopatra was boring. HMS Pinafore was quite hilarious, though. Between plays and friends and shopping, I've had quite an entertaining few days.

But.

NOTHING could have prepared me for the awesomeness that was Hamlet tonight. I've never seen it live before, but I highly doubt any other live performance I may see in the future could live up to this. It was absolutely AMAZING.

Brian Vaughn can so sit by me.

More details later. Probably when I write up this whole trip.

I want to see it again. Right NOW.
