Re: Benedict to play Hamlet on stage

I would love to come along, depending on when it will be (if it will be at all, that is). I'll be quite busy around the end of April. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cool.png

Re: Benedict to play Hamlet on stage

I'm sure we'd have to be pretty fast for tickets, this will probably be sold out in about 30 minutes, don't you think?

Count me in, too! Are we enough people for chartering a plane yet? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


But like SolarSystem said, it'll probably difficult to get tickets at all, let alone all of us getting them for the same performance... But one can always hope ;)
