Stupid teenage girls. I know there are at least a few that are actually going for the piece itself, but this just makes me angry. I have always had a very deep love for literature what with having two authors in the family, and I find the antics insulting. It shouldn’t matter who is playing who or what for that matter. I can’t say too much about stupid teenage girls since I’m nineteen, but I’ve grown up and am in my second year of college. So for that, fuck off. Now I’m in a bad mood because of this shit. Okay, RANT OVER. 😡😤😒
No need to complain about Cumberbatch’s fanbase buying Hamlet tickets.
a) Same as with the demographics of Tumblr in general, it probably would surprise you how many of Cumberbatch’s followers are in the 30 to 60 years’ range [ just for example : myself - I am 50 years old ].
b) Many have sat in the audience of Shakespeare theatre productions before. Having an appreciation for Shakespeare and having an appreciation for the acting craft of Mr. Benedict Cumberbatch are not mutually exclusive.
c) When Sir Laurence Olivier played Hamlet, or when Sir Derek Jacobi played Hamlet, a major part of their audiences had come to see those actors in that role, and not just any Hamlet. Why should it be any different with Benedict Cumberbatch, who has years of experience as a theatre actor under his belt ?
d) Regardless of the motivation behind coming, horizons get expanded, and maybe even new interests will get awakened …
e) Even newcomers to the theatre seats can learn theatre etiquette, I daresay most of them possess a natural reticience and politeness anyway.
And so it begins. *sigh* 45 here. Yes, 45 and on tumblr. 45 and I fangirl over Benedict Cumberbatch. Get the fuck over it!
BUT also 45 and a Shakespeare lover, 45 and literate, 45 and I know how to behave in the theatre, 45 and probably have more clue than Kimberley Percy Bleeding Clark about most things.
While we’re throwing the blind assumptions around, she’s probably… 14, no money for a ticket, and jealous! *wink*
wow, what an ignorant thing to post. i’m too old to care anymore about what girls like her say or think. i am going to see hamlet and love it. so that is my victory over her.
What a silly, ignorant thing to say. I agree with everyone except that ignorant tweet. I’m going, I’m 35, I’m happy. I’m glad younger people are going. Teenagers aren’t stupid, they are bright and curious. I know I was at that age. Shame on people that are bitter, jealous and ignorant.
How dare you. How dare you call it disgusting for someone to purchase a ticket to see something they love. Whether it be for the play itself, or the wonderful actors in them shouldn’t matter. Plus Benedict is a very popular actor, and Hamlet is a very well known play, so of course it’s gong to be sold out, but to assume it’s just by teenage fangirls is completely wrong. God I hate when fangirls are put in a bad light. Especially the young fans. And who says you can’t be a teenage fangirl AND like Shakespeare? I went to see the filmed version of Hiddleston’s Coriolanus because I like Shakespeare and Tom. Some went to see the play, others went to watch Tom- but they all enjoyed themselves either way, and that’s what should matter. I, a 17 year old fan, enjoy Benedict’s acting and the literature of Shakespeare, so you bet your sweet arse I would go and see it if I could. But I wouldn’t be one of those screaming fans, because I’m not a rude person, and I have some bleedin’ common sense when in a theatre, as would most people, thanks very much. Dick.
We’re going to Jotunheim.
DON’T EVEN TOUCH ME
No wonder he did something to Odin.
So many reasons to do something - not nice - to Odin. I want in on that action ‘cause Odin is a fucking bastard.
