Hey, its shakespeare, Contemporary

See it if You love Hamlet, and are OK with converting several male roles to female, including the big kahuna. They do a good job of the shift.

Don't see it if You hope the acting level will be at least equal to usual Drilling Company standards, and that you will be able to hear most of the text.

Times Square Chronicles
July 24th, 2018

“The Drilling Company’s adaptation of the play expertly brings it to a modern and very familiar American setting and ethos...Accessible and entertaining, but also relevant to an age when stories of political intrigue, class division and societal change dominate American media and thought...An entertaining show even for those who find it difficult to keep track of all of Shakespeare’s poetic flourishes and complicated plot points.”
