Once again, the stars shine at the outdoor Hill Theatre, with American Players Theatre’s production of “Hamlet.”
Last seen on the Hill in 2013, Shakespeare’s longest – and most popular of 37 plays – currently showcases a magnificent cast of 19 directed by James DeVita, who coincidentally portrayed Claudius in the 2013 production. And the always amazing, cued-for-passion DeVita has kept this production well-paced (no four-hour show here!) and engaging.
“The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark” has endured for over 400 years, and seen many a well-known actor in the title role – from Laurence Olivier to Mel Gibson. And who isn’t familiar with the ultimate tragic revenge/dysfunctional family saga?
