About the show

Hamlet Isn't Dead presents Shakespeare's classic comedy of squabbling lovers and meddling fairies. More…

Welcome to Athens, one of the world’s oldest cities! This town has seen countless stories of love and betrayal, but none quite like this one. The tangled knot of four young lovers threatens to unravel a royal wedding. Elsewhere, a band of would-be actors plan to create the greatest show the world has ever seen. They all descend into the forest, but little do they know that it won’t only be filled with mortal beings this night: the faerie king and queen have their own disputes to resolve. Hamlet Isn’t Dead highlights the lightness and musicality of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies with a production featuring harmonic renditions of classic and modern tunes, and an immersive, playful style.
