The only trouble I encountered in this version of Hamlet was the unsuccessful attempt to incorporate different eras into the costuming. Horatio appeared to be a modern-day hipster, Ophelia seemed stuck in the sixties, while Gertrude stuck with a classical, timeless look. I spent so much time trying to decipher the visual clues (a camera, old-fashioned telephones, etc...) that it detracted from the performance. While I normally enjoy "modernizations" of classic literature, I feel that Hamlet's portrayal was only half-hearted.
However, as I mentioned before, this was the only complaint I had; all other aspects of the play were wonderful.
