    A focused, if at times melodramatic, take on the play's beating heart.

    A modestly inventive but curiously bloodless version of the Bard’s timeless tragedy.

    While Mr. Ramsay accomplishes some kind of a trick in streamlining the play, his trimming of corners feels more like a taking away of the center.

    Peter Wingfield delivers an engagingly oily Claudius, and Lara Gilchrist's Ophelia is radiant. But Ramsay's Hamlet's madness never really overcomes the character's traditional emo temperament.
