    Making Ophelia (and the rest of the cast, I assume) a kid really intrigued me. Wouldn’t that be inappropriate for Hamlet’s somewhat mature themes? I mean, they didn’t make the kid act like she was drowning, did they?

    I guess, they turned most of Shakespeare’s plays into comedy, including the tragic ones. So don’t worry about Ophelia dying. Probably she slips on some banana peelings and dives into the water or something. 🙂
