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

Ambitious, Clever, Riveting, Intelligent

See it if You interested in a clever twist on the classic Shakespeare.

Don't see it if You don't have the patience for a particularly long show--3 hours. But it moved quickly.

“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.”
