Description

Passion, jealousy, and murder never got so many laughs! John Minigan's new and wild reimagining of the Shakespeare classic has more twists than a gallows necktie. Hamlet is a wise-cracking private eye, his pal Horatio is now a complicated gal Friday named Rae Chio and the rotten state of Denmark is transformed into the City of Angels circa 1949. Mix equal parts of the Bard, Bogart and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and shake vigorously. Boston Globe Critics' Pick! Edge Media's Best of Boston Theatre 2018!

Joe Antoun’s production is awash with jazz, fedora’s, doubles of scotch and lighting that casts shadows over all that it touches. This Boston Fringe award-winning piece from YASPLC LLC manages to catch the atmosphere of the period

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 66 days ago

Pour a glass of whisky, settle into the sounds of a sax solo and join ‘Little H’ for a new noir take on Shakespeare's famous tragedy, Hamlet. Set in 1940s Los Angeles, this adaptation has a gritty gangster edge, reminiscent of the golden era of Hollywood. The setting may be...
