Great acting, Masterful, Profound, Resonant, Absorbing

See it if You can get a ticket. Ruth Negga is brilliant and the entire cast supports her perfectly. Yael Farber’s direction is unique and masterful.

Don't see it if Following the themes of darkness and drama in Hamlet will not appeal to you.

Slave Play
East Village
Intense, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you want to be part of contemporary dialogue of art, theater, race, gender, culture. Trust the play- it will keep you thinking for days.
