Ham­let gets a rock mu­si­cal up­date as Bri­tish cult band The Tiger Lil­lies team 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. The Sin Fam­ily
