David Tennant helps remix Shakespeare with hip-hop in app
Hamlet for millennials? That seems to be the Royal Shakespeare Company’s play.
An app by the famed company and Samsung called “RE:Shakespeare” tries to repackage the legendary playwright’s work with a hip-hop vibe and technological enhancement. Former Dr. Who star David Tennant is one of the many actors involved in the experience. According to its description, the app includes a hip-hop quiz, a breakdown on the extravagant insults in the Shakespeare lexicon, a 360-degree performance of Much Ado About Nothing, and more.
Tennant, the British actor, has worked with the RSC before. He starred as Hamlet along with Patrick Stewart, later taking up another starring role as Richard II. Tennant also played Berowne in Love’s Labours Lost.
The app is available on the Google Play Store.
