William Shakespeare's Hamlet
(Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))
The Acting Company tackles Hamlet for the first time in its 40-year history. The play dramatizes the tortuous route Prince Hamlet takes to exact revenge for his father's murder. It vividly portrays overwhelming grief and rage while exploring themes of danger, political intrigue, and moral corruption. Hamlet is among the most powerful and influential tragedies in English literature, and many believe it is the best of Shakespeare's works - it has even been called "the perfect play." Ian Belknap, artistic director of The Acting Company, brings this masterpiece to life after directing last year's tour de force, Of Mice and Men.
