    I think Michael is truly a genius. I saw him act in ‘Midnight Hotel’ and enjoyed his direction in ‘Hamlet’. Chennai is lucky to have him… amazing energy and impeccable comic timing! I am looking forward to ‘An Idiot for Dinner’.

    Just saw the COmplete Works of William Shakespeare ( Abridged) by the Black Cow Company in Delhi; which was uncannily similar to A cut above Hamlet that I had watched by Evam in 2006, Chennai. Any comments?


  5. sunil says:

    hey Nupur, The Cut of Hamlet by evam is based on the original “Complete works…” by the group -Reduced Shakespeare Company (Australia). The version of Hamlet we do now(2009) has almost 50% content changed ..hence become a version on its own.
