The Tiger Lil­lies Per­form Ham­let

Ham­let gets a rock mu­si­cal up­date as Bri­tish cult band The Tiger Lil­lies teams up with Dan­ish con­tem­po­rary theatre troupe Theatre Republique to retell the story of the young, tor­mented Dan­ish king and the rain of blood which en­sues as he comes to terms with who re­ally killed his fa­ther. Bal­anc­ing touches of cabaret, opera and gypsy mu­sic and the mul­ti­me­dia ex­per­tise of Theatre Republique, this stage adap­ta­tion is set to be an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence—at least far more so than Mel Gib­son’s ver­sion. Sep 9-10, 8pm;

Sep 11, 3pm. Kwai Ts­ing Theatre,

12 Hing Ning Rd., Kwai Fong.

$180-420 from urbtix.hk.

Jeeves and Wooster in Per­fect Non­sense PG Wode­house’s lov­able char­ac­ters, Ber­tie Wooster and his valet Jeeves, come to life on the stage in their new play—and play-within-aplay—”Jeeves and Wooster in Per­fect Non­sense.” There’s a mis­han­dled match­mak­ing, a sil­ver cow creamer gag, and other clas­sic Woos­t­e­rian hi­jinks. Sep 13-25. Drama Theatre, Academy for Performing Arts, 1 Glouces­ter Rd., Wan Chai. $450-650 from hk­tick­et­ing.com.
