By Stephen Holden Hamlet 2 Directed by Andrew Fleming (U.S.) Reviewed by Stephen Holden * 'Hamlet 2" belongs to the school of free-for-all satiric farce whose creators ball up wads of ideas, apply chewing gum and hurl them against the wall to see what sticks.

By Reel N.M. DAN MAYFIELD Of the Journal When New Mexico started enticing filmmakers to come here to make movies, one of the hopes was always that we would be part of a low- budget blockbuster. The state's incentives, which provide rebates or loans to filmmakers, were designed to help large- and small-budget filmmakers realize their dreams in the hopes that we could be part of a movie that became a phenomenon, like "Little Miss Sunshine" or "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." Those independent...

STRATFORD-UPON-AVON, England - It's Hamlet, but not as we know it. The Royal Shakespeare Company usually draws genteel, theater- loving crowds to the serene town of Stratford, the playwright's birthplace. It has never seen anything like the fan frenzy surrounding a new production of Hamlet that stars not one but two science fiction icons: David Tennant, the hero of the British Broadcasting Corp.'s beloved Doctor Who, and Patrick Stewart of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Tickets for...

By CAROLYN CHURCHILL and AMANDA MACMILLAN HE is a good, if not a great, Dane. That was the verdict yesterday after Doctor Who star David Tennant made his longawaited appearance as Hamlet in a Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) production. The casting of the 37-yearold Scot as the young Danish prince had sparked some barbed comments about theatre companies using big names to fill seats. But Tennant's performance at The Courtyard Theatre, Stratford- upon-Avon, has been roundly praised by...

LOOK who's all dressed up as Shakespeare's Hamlet. If you didn't know already, David Tennant - best-known as TV's Dr Who - is playing the prince of Denmark at Stratford and fans are said to be paying up to pounds 1,000 on eBay to get hold of tickets. If these stunning dress rehearsal photos are anything to go by, they are in for a treat.

By Arline A Fleming Fans of Shakespeare can, after a year's absence, lend an ear (and maybe a few bucks) when As You Like It starts a run tonight at Wilcox Park. WESTERLY -- The truck carrying stage lighting was stuck in Connecticut's Route 95 traffic on Monday, delaying Harland Meltzer's Shakespeare in the Park production schedule by three hours. He spent the early part of the week checking the Weather Whannel as carefully as his actors checked their lines, attempting to predict the...

The Hamlet (Hypoplectrus), is a grouping fish that is found mainly in coral reefs in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, particularly around Florida and the Bahamas. Hamlets are simultaneous hermaphrodites (or synchronous hermaphrodites): They have both male and female sexual organs at the same time as an adult. They seem quite at ease mating in front of divers, allowing observations in the wild to occur readily. They do not practice self-fertilization, but when they find a mate, the...
