The 24 April 2010 matinée performance
of Folger Theater's 'Hamlet',
recommended by classical music agony aunt ALICE McVEIGH
I had no sooner sat down when a good-looking young man in his twenties appealed to me to settle a point with his girlfriend. 'Is Hamlet a comedy or a tragedy?'
I do not pretend to be a Shakespearean expert, but I could answer that one succinctly, upon which the girlfriend leaned forward rather anxiously, 'Do a lot of people die?'
