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.
