A Palestinian boy cries after watching his wounded relatives being rushed to emergency rooms at the Nasser hospital following an Israeli air strike in Khan Younis, the southern Gaza Strip, Thursday, July 24, 2014. Israeli troops backed by tanks and aerial drones clashed with Hamas fighters armed with rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles on the outskirts of Khan Younis, killing many militants, according to a Palestinian health official. Hundreds of people fled their homes as the battle unfolded, flooding into the streets with what few belongings they could carry, many with children in tow. They said they were seeking shelter in nearby U.N. schools. (AP Photo/Hatem Ali)

A June 2014 photo made available by Cornershop PR showing Lucy Briggs-Owen as Viola with members of the company. A hit. A very palpable hit. So says a character in the new West End production "Shakespeare in Love," quoting "Hamlet." And so say most London critics about the big-budget stage version of the Tudor-set rom-com that charmed its way to seven Academy Awards in 1998. On Thursday, July 24, 2014 critics showered the play with accolades that will make producers' ad campaign a dream. The Evening Standard's Henry Hitchings praised the play's "fizzy, infectious exuberance," while the Daily Telegraph's Charles Spencer said it "generates a glow you could warm your hands by." Paul Taylor in The Independent topped them all: "It makes you feel grateful to be alive." Adapted by Lee Hall _ and co-produced by Disney, whose backing has helped fund a large-scale production with a 28-strong cast _ the play sticks close to the film’s plot.
