TOPIC: Q1 in Performance: Have you seen it, and did you like it?

Q1 in Performance: Have you seen it, and did you like it? 6 years 2 months ago #1744

I'm currently reading The Arden Shakespeare's Hamlet: The Texts of 1603 and 1623, edited by Ann Thompson and Neil Taylor. In the section on Q1, they provide a checklist of Q1 major productions up through 2003. Has anyone on this list seen a performance of the 1603 Quarto? And if you did see it, did you like it?

Productions listed included Los Angeles (2003), London (2000), Stratford-Upon-Avon (1985, 1996, 1999), Tokyo (!) (1983) and numerous others, dating back to 1881.

I haven't seen any. But I have the same Arden edition, and I must say I laughed pretty hard when I read Q1. There are so many corrupt bits that are clearly not Shakespeare, so I can't say I blame theater companies for not producing Q1 performances very often.
