A 90-minute adaptation of William Shakespeare’s work by Tal Aviezer.

This energetic, scaled-down production aims to remove as many barriers as possible between the Bard’s words and the audience, compressed into 90-minute adaptation with intimate staging. One of the reasons we come to the theater is to recognize ourselves, and Hamlet is an enduring character because people from all walks of life, of all ages and nationalities, have recognized their essential humanity in him. Shakespeare’s language is electrifying because he manages somehow to articulate thoughts that we all recognize as truth, but that we ourselves have never been able to express. We hope our production will convey that sense of emotional, intellectual, and spiritual homecoming to our audience.

Performed in repertory with separate showings of I Hate Hamlet, a comedy by Paul Rudnick. Performances are in the Grand Picture Gallery of Lyndhurst Mansion.

When: February 17, 2 pm. February 18, 5 pm. February 24, 7 pm. February 25, 2 pm. March 3, 2 pm. March 4, 5 pm.
