displaymedia-1Our American Hamlet
A World Premiere by Jake Broder
Directed by Steven Maler

The year was 1866, less than a year after President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. His brother Edwin Booth, one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of the nineteenth century, decided to perform Hamlet on Broadway, a role he had performed in the past to great acclaim. A huge crowd turned up for the performance — but it wasn’t clear whether they were there to see the actor perform, or to exact their revenge.  Jacob Fishel, an actor with a wide-ranging career on television and on and off Broadway, takes on the role of Booth.  Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company

Selected performances (TBA) free for students.
