Audience comments:


Brought Hamlet to life for me in new ways

This is the most compelling production of Hamlet I’ve ever seen.

“Wonderfully felt and spoken performances—the most powerful Hamlet I have seen.

“What an amazingly accessible, compelling, and inspirational production of Hamlet we enjoyed on Sunday! I have taught, seen, and even directed the play several times, yet your ensemble brought the language, the themes, and the infinite variety and depth of the text to vivid life beyond anything I have before experienced and imagined! Thank you! Bravo!
