As the two performers constantly sat on stools, not getting up even once, the entire play was a great display of mime and timing. One significant aspect was that it was done in german, italian and english. Yet, the whole public was enjoying the play as if it was being done in its original language. THE NEWS, Lahore, Pakistan

- Markus Zohner Theater Compagnie’s two hander Ha!Hamlet is in a class by itself. Compressing but not reinventing the story of the Prince of Denmark, Zohner and his colleague, Patrizia Barbuiani, entertain us with an extravagant physical interpretation that goes well beyond a point where Shakespeare would have feared to tread. Both are brilliant physical comedians who work together (sometimes silently, sometimes with abundant self-generated sound effects and sometimes with words — in any language that seems handy, it seems) with the precision of a swiss clock. (They are from Lugano.) Zohner is sensational: seemingly in charge of every involuntary muscle in his body, whether it is the one controlling his eyeballs (which disappear when he plays The Ghost and appear frighteningly askew as Gertrude approaches death), the shape of his face or the configuration of the long fingers on his remarkably expressive hands. Their rendition of “Gonzago’s Murder” and of the confusion of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are by far my most memorable ever. This production included two things that are unusual at fringe: an intermission and (at the performance I attended) a standing ovationLes Gutman, CurtainUp / New York
