“An absolute blast of an adaptation that is very well aware of how iconic the source material is, but also just how silly it is too. With a rebellious Ophelia and some clueless Rosencrantz and Guildensterns, a healthy dose of meta humor where the genuinely hilarious is effortlessly interspersed with so many dad-joke groaners that they too become hilarious, ‘Hamlet: Abridged (and Possibly Improved?)’ would be perfect for young audiences and even those who take Shakespeare way too seriously. Read it, right now. It’ll revive your long-forgotten ambition to play a hearty game of Curtain Ghost. ”
