I’m a huge fan of the TV shows ‘The Good Wife’ and it’s sequel ‘The Good Fight’. Honestly two of my favourite ever TV shows. If you haven’t watched either of them I can really highly recommend them. Both star the wonderful British actor Cush Jumbo, so when my friends let me know they had managed to bag £10 tickets to see her in the titular role of Hamlet at the Young Vic I jumped at the chance to join them.
Hamlet is probably one of the hardest roles any actor can perform, there’s a lot of lines and it’s a seriously intense role. The last time I saw Hamlet performed was Benedick Cumberbatch’s sold out, rave reviewed performance at the Barbican, so expectations were high. Thankfully I wasn’t disappointed, she did a brilliant job. Well worth seeing.
