While Hamlet is off monologuing, what about the rest of Elsinore?
Hamlet: Reframed tells Shakespeare's story through the eyes of the Danish court. Rather than showing Hamlet's inner thoughts and private actions, this cropping of the original text focuses on how the king and queen deal with a mad and murderous prince.
What they said:
Ross Preston, DC Theatre Scene (full review)
"A tour de force [that] will suit people at all ends of the Hamlet spectrum, from experts to children that have never seen or even heard of a Shakespeare play."
"Sam Rabinovitz delivers a knockout performance as Hamlet... You have to see it to believe it."
Marianne Naval, Maryland Theatre Guide (full review)
"A panoply of consistently powerful performances awaits all theatergoers."
