Feature

Friday, November 23, 2007

For 10 years, the actor Scott Shepherd dreamed of playing Hamlet. He got his chance in a highly experimental “duet,” reciting Richard Burton’s lines, and moving Burton’s moves, while the 1964 film plays behind him. But he doesn’t like his co-star. Produced by Jenny Lawton.
