"This production of 'Hamlet,' running unabridged, and at over four hours with two intermissions, is a very good case study in how even Shakespeare's writings benefit from the usual judicious edits. But beyond the run time, the production stands on solid legs...Steeped in the Meisner technique, the cast, under the direction of DeSotelle, react to one another with vitality and, when they lock eyes on the audience doing their soliloquies, they bring an immediacy to the centuries-old verse."
