Ambitious, Edgy, Quirky, Clever, Disappointing

See it if You'd like an interesting fresh take on Hamlet, genders switched. Uneven cast and direction, but Griffin is quite compelling.

Don't see it if You like your Hamlet straight, not reimagined. Read more

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great staging, Great acting, Refreshing

See it if You want to see a "Hamlet" that will actually make you think and feel. Griffin and Clardy as Hamlet and Ophelia are the best I've seen.

Don't see it if You don't want a heavy night at the theater.

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Must see, Hilarious

See it if You bemoan the lack of comedy or relevance in most Shakespeare productions, and you want to see the best "To be or not to be" ever

Don't see it if You can't stand Shakespeare, or don't want to think.

Exquisite, Thought-provoking, Profound, Intelligent, Must see

November 20th, 2016

“This Hamlet cuts through gender, and even, to a degree, sexual orientation. What we have is an everyman Hamlet who is all of us, and, as in Emma Watson's words at her UN He For She speech, calls for all of us to be both sensitive, and strong. Griffin has directed a remarkable, and deeply moving production. If this is the kind of art that develops in response to the current state of America, maybe there will be something good that comes out of it after all.”
