Hamlet Isn’t Dead is back in 2019 to present Shakespeare’s most famous play in characteristically vibrant style. From the theatre company that brought you last year’s sold-out pop romantic comedy MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, the acoustic all-female adventure AS YOU LIKE IT, and the rock music-infused JULIUS CAESAR, this production of HAMLET is another musical, joyful, and immediate Shakespearean experience that makes you remember why you love the Bard.
The play sees Hamlet, prince of Denmark, navigate grief and the tragedy of their father’s death, their mother’s overhasty remarriage, and their crumbling relationship with lover Ophelia. As Hamlet’s life falls apart, they discover hidden truths and machinations in the court, and must wrestle not only with the ruthless new king and cronies, but also their own internal turmoil.
Hamlet is brought to life in this production by not one, but TWO actors at the peak of their craft. Long-time Hamlet Isn’t Dead stalwarts David Andrew Laws and Megan Greener will alternate the roles of Hamlet and Ophelia each performance. Combined with Hamlet Isn’t Dead’s signature stagecraft and live, original music, each show is guaranteed to be a thrilling one-of-a-kind theatrical experience.

"Another tight, terrific, and tuneful comedy from the Hamlet Isn't Dead crew. ...a sweet and joyful condensing of the comedy... This cast is composed entirely of women or gender nonconforming actors, and every last one of them is a delight."
-Zelda Knapp from A Work Unfinishing
"...fearless Shakespeare, all female cast, smart direction, transformative space, great acting, live music!"
-Greg from Show-Score
"See it if you love seeing empowered women doing Shakespeare in a thought-provoking, insightful, and incredibly entertaining way."
-Sophcathy from Show-Score
"For every moment of a HID production, performers are actively engaging audience members, &, for an audience, engagement is the principal factor in a quality experience. ... This is a gloriously all-female production, but this never feels like a concept."
