Benedict Cumberbatch appears to be the hottest ticket in town in his native United Kingdom and according to a report by ticketing website Viagogo, may even be more popular than Beyoncé and Jay Z. The baritone-voiced British star is set to begin a 12-week run as the star of Hamlet at London's Barbican Theatre a year from now, and the production has already become the most in-demand theater show in the country. The revival of William Shakespeare's classic play runs from Aug. 5, 2015 to Oct. 31, 2015 and tickets went on sale this past Monday. The show is almost sold out. Viagogo says that hours after tickets were made available, there were 214 percent more searches for Hamlet than queries for Beyoncé & Jay Z's 2014 On the Run tour. less
