"Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead"

Samuel Barnett and Jamie Parker as the title characters in Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead” at Theatre Royal Haymarket, London.

To be blunt, Barnett and Parker stunk. The whole production stunk.

“Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead” was the London production I had most looked forward to seeing. It turned out to be the very worst of the productions we attended.

The theater was practically empty the evening we saw “Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead”. The many unoccupied seats were exceptionally well-deserved.

The production has closed since we attended the August 5 evening performance.
