I have started comparing various versions of Hamlet as I watch them, grading the various characters and the overall production. I have these tagged as "Hamlet Comparisons," but I thought it would be fun to put them all on one page too, just to see at a glance how I like things. I think I'll arrange them in order of production date. And I'm leaving off Murder Most Foul since it doesn't actually exist, alas.
