Hamlet

Description

The keystone of Shakespeare’s works, this most famous play of all plays has a thousand times more words written about it than the play itself contains. Compass Rose Theater celebrates the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare by sharing a live production of his most celebrated play. To portray this work, and bring it to life on our stage is an honor and a privilege. Hamlet, aggrieved son and nephew to the new king, seeks to avenge his father’s most certain murder. He must be sure of the crime before he acts; and it is in the struggle of whether to act or to wait that the drama of the play finds its core. Language so beautiful it is heart stopping, a story so compelling that it demands that we witness it live create an unforgettable theatrical experience not to be missed.
