It's the RSC, so I'm sure it will be fantastic. "Hamlet" is one of the tragedies I've never seen onstage, and the cast looks amazing. When my pal got tickets, I couldn't say no--to see a production of "Hamlet" in Stratford? SIGN ME UP. And I've never seen Tennant onstage, so I'm really curious, tho I've lots of friends who saw him years ago with RSC, and they had nothing but good to report.
Mostly, what I'm looking forward to are visiting friends I usually only get to see once a year in February, meeting friends who don't come to the US at all. Being a complete dork and doing tourist-y things. I've never been to London without my family, on trips to visit the family that live in the UK, so I've no idea what it's like to do normal things like ride the tube from place to place. And the Eye didn't even exist, last time I was there. And I won't have a bored sibling trying to shuffle me out of the second-hand bookshops! *GLEE*
And trust me--there will be the pilgrimmage to Forbidden Planet.

I'll do my best, but as it is, I've trying to schedule visiting time for every night I'm in town (mostly with "Doctor Who" fandom friends) and a lot of it depends on which night I'm eating with extended family (couldn't get out of at least one family dinner while I'm there), and what my two travelling buds want to do as well.
In a world full of Uma Thurmans, everyone has an inner Janine Garafolo who needs to be taken out dancing every once in a while.
