Something is NOT rotten in the state of ticket sales for Benedict Cumberbatch's Hamlet!
According to the ticketing website Viagogo, the forthcoming 2015 production of Hamlet starring Benedict has become the fastest-selling ticket in London theater history.
Sure, Beyoncé might be the Queen Bey, but Hamlet is the Prince of Denmark! For sooth!
Now, online tickets may be gone for Hamlet, but you won't have to suffer the slings and arrows of this outrageous fortune!
The Barbican theater is releasing 100 tickets per each performance, and apparently more info will be released about it in 2015. Huzzah!
Well, there seems to be some method to this madness! Congrats Benedict!
