A ghost story, a murder mystery, and a coming-of-age tale all in one, Shakespeare's masterpiece is a must-see in a season of must-sees. Hamlet's gripping quest for the truth ensnares the prince of Denmark and those closest to him in a web of deceit, subterfuge, and finally, death.
Artistic Director Bonnie J. Monte sets the play in the kind of haunting and evocative landscape (and soundscape) for which The Shakespeare Theatre has become known, with Broadway's Gareth Saxe in the infinitely enigmatic role of Hamlet.
