from the WGBH web site:
Commonwealth Shakespeare Company has taken Shakespeare’s most iconic play to meet the cutting edge of immersive storytelling in Hamlet 360: Thy Father’s Spirit, embracing the immersive power of VR to plunge viewers into Hamlet’s harrowing journey. This cinematic 360-degree adaptation explores new dimensions of the medium by casting the viewer as the Ghost of Hamlet’s dead father. Giving them this role as an omniscient observer, guide and participant, lends viewers a sense of agency and urgency throughout the 60-minute experience.Hamlet has been adapted for film before, of course. Lawrence Olivier was Hamlet in 1948. In 1990 Mel Gibson starred in a Franco Zeffirelli film. There are about 50 others. I'd much rather see a play than read it, so I enjoy having a choice in adaptations.
