Shakespeare’s Globe / From London
“A slick and engaging production.”
— Financial Times
In just two and half hours, a handful of players from London’s Globe embrace the theatre of Shakespeare’s day in this youthful and humorous production.
From Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, a handful of players perform this timeless classic. Hamlet explores political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection (“to be, or not to be…”) and violent action, tragic depth and wild humor. Capturing the youthful and less jaded aspects of Hamlet’s personality rarely seen in more traditional interpretations, in just two and a half hours, this production embraces the theatre of Shakespeare’s day. Actors play multiple characters and live music, infusing the performance with a lively energy. Humorous and boisterous, the Globe Company packs an emotional wallop with their inherent theatricality.
