Williamson's 1969 "Hamlet" at the Roundhouse Theatre was a sensation in London, considered by many to to be the best limning of The Dane since the definitive 20th-century portrayal by John Gielgud, a performance in that period, rivaled in kudos only by Richard Burton's 1964 Broadway performance. In a sense, Williamson and Burton were the last two great Hamlets of the century. Read more...
