Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead  (Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))

Tom Stoppard's hilarious Tony AwardŽ-winning play centers on the misadventures of two minor characters from Hamlet. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is structured as the inverse of Hamlet: the title characters are the leads, and Hamlet himself has only a small part. The duo appears in this comedy primarily when they are off-stage in Shakespeare's play. The play focuses on free will vs. determinism, the search for value, and the impassivity of certainty framed by the comedy, cleverness, and ambiguities inherent in language. This is signature Stoppard, author of The Real Thing and The Coast of Utopia as well as the film Shakespeare in Love. Tony AwardŽ winner John Rando directs.
