Benedict Cumberbatch as Hamlet
The Loft Cinema of Tucson will present screenings of Hamlet, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, at noon on May 22, and at 7:30 p.m. on May 24. Academy Award-nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy in this National Theatre production.
Directed by Lyndsey Turner and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, National Theatre Live will broadcast this eagerly awaited production live to cinemas. As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
