    I saw this "Hamlet" at the Almeida and was impressed enough to want to see the West End transfer. Andrew Scott is superb in the title role, with a very strong cast. The staging is excellent and Robert Icke has created a wonderful and engrossing production.
    Sat in Stalls M14
    This is an excellent seat! You're close enough to see really well, but far enough back to get a good perspective of the whole stage. The slope isn't huge, but heads in front don't block the view and you can easily look between heads if want to see anything on the floor of the stage. You're not far off centre either. The seat was very comfortable for a performance of over 3.5 hrs, and legroom was good enough to easily cross my legs.

    Andrew Scott as Hamlet brings a new, seemingly fresh dimension to the role. He is mesmerising as are all the accomplished cast. The set design and staging has modern twist and innovative. Everyone knows Hamlet is a long play but this production fizzed and whizzed by with great pace, drama and a lot of comedy given it's a tragedy. I loved it so much (as did my 11-yr-old) that I'm going back for closing night in September. It's a must-see staging of this classic. Andrew Scott is truly captivating.
    Sat in Stalls K9
    Excellent view of the stage and all the action. You're slap bang in the middle of the stalls and centre facing to the stage. More than happy and my 11-yr-old daughter had a great view - in spite of London's broadest and tallest man sitting in the row in front of us. Although the seats are old and legroom is quite tight - it's a seat worth paying for because of the excellent view of the stage. Lovely small theatre with a glorious history and lots of original show posters on display. Lovely helpful front of house staff too.

    A brilliant adaptation and modern take on the story but remaining true to the original.
    My seat A2 in Royal Circle. The seat is sold as a restricted view but I had a brilliant view and the safety rail did not interfere at all. I would say that A1 has a double height rail so maybe avoid that seat - the lady there moved at the interval (or maybe she left?)

    Such a great adaptation.
    Sat in Stalls J12
    Excellent seats. Slight rake so if you're stuck behind a tall person be weary. Central and great legroom. Seats staggered.

HAMLET SEATING PLAN
The Harold Pinter Theatre generally gives quite good seats throughout the Stalls, however lacking any real rake, short theatregoers may find it difficult to see close to the rears, as well as columns in Row M providing some restricted views.

The Dress Circle also has pillars in Row C, and has less leg room than the Stalls, however lacking a distinct curve does not have many restricted view seats. The Royal Circle and Balcony however have a lot deeper curves meaning some seats can be quite side on, as well as feeling quite distant and cramped.

STORY
Andrew Scott takes the lead role in Robert Icke’s incredible acclaimed production of Hamlet which is set to transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre for a limited run, with performances beginning on 9th June 2017 and set to continue until 2nd September 2017.

Robert Icke’s Hamlet was first performed at the Almeida Theatre, where it’s sold out run opened to rave reviews, receiving glowing five star acclaim from Metro, Time Out, The Observer, The Stage and Whatsonstage, being described as ‘liverwire, edge-of-the-seat stuff’ which features Andrew Scott in a ‘career-defining performance’.

Andrew Scott stars in the lead role of Hamlet. Scott has become one of the most talked about Irish actors in recent years, after shooting to stardom in the role of the psychotic Moriaty in the BBC TV series Sherlock as well as his big screen roles in Locke and Pride.

Scott is also a renowned stage actor however, most recently having starred in The Dazzle at the popup theatre Found111, as well as having leading roles in Birdland at the Royal Court and Emperor and Galilean at the National Theatre. Scott has won a huge range of awards, including an Olivier, an IFTA and a BAFTA.

This new production of Hamlet is by Robert Icke, a man known as one of the biggest powerhouses of British theatre today. His previous production of Oresteia at the Almeida won him the Best Director Award at the Olivier Awards, the Critics Circle Theatre Awards and the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, as well as 1984 winning him Best Director at the UK Theatre Awards and Best New Play at the Olivier Awards.

Hamlet is brought to the stage by the acclaimed creative team that had previously worked on both 1984 and Oresteia, including set and costume design by Hildegard Bechtler, lighting by Natasha Chivers, sound by Tom Gibbons and video by Tal Yarden.

Known as one of William Shakespeare’s very best plays, Hamlet is a tragedy written around the turn of the 17th century which has rarely been off the London stage since. Most recently, Sonia Friedman’s landmark production at the Barbican made headlines starring Hollywood star Benedict Cumberbatch.

Hamlet at the Harold Pinter Theatre is set to be one of the most exciting West End transfers of the year, with Robert Icke’s incredibly acclaimed production getting a chance to expands its audience following a sold out run at the Almedia Theatre.

Hamlet will begin previews on the 9th June 2017, with an official opening on 15th June 2017 and with performances set to continue for a limited time until 2nd September 2017, this is certainly not to be missed.
SUITABLE FOR
Hamlet at the Harold Pinter Theatre is a must see for any Shakespeare fans who enjoy modern ground-breaking adaptations of the great playwright’s work. With one of London’s greatest directors and one of the West End’s greatest stage actors, this is set to be a smash hit, giving those who missed out on tickets for the sold out Almeida Theatre run another chance to see the play.
