A Midsummer Night's Dream:
Directed by James Rightmyer Jr.
Teresa Perkins -- 'My Entertainment World'
"...the Midsummer ensemble nicely compliments one another and embraces their respective roles with satisfying aplomb. If you are in search of some quality Shakespeare this summer...Hamlet Isn’t Dead’s exuberant rendition of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a delightful way to lose yourself for an afternoon...."

Richard II/Romeo & Juliet:
Directed by Emily C.A. Snyder/David Andrew Laws

Thomas Burns Scully -- 'OnStage Blog'
"David Andrew Laws’ direction suits the action to the word and the word to the action, and fits the whole thing neatly on the small model of the barren Earth that he has been given."

Sarin West -- 'Times Square Chronicles'
"This young company will thrive–they may be small but they are mighty."

Zelda Knapp -- 'A Work Unfinishing'
"Snyder understands this acutely and crafts her production - staged in the challenging alley formation - cleanly and with little ornament, relying on the words and the people speaking them to convey the narrative."

Michael Bradley Block -- 'Theater in the Now'
"Hamlet Isn’t Dead’s production has its ups and downs but as a whole it is a prized production."

Richard III
Directed by Brian Gillespie

Natalie Sacks -- 'Charged.FM'
"What Hamlet Isn't Dead brings to this an innovative look at how puppetry and theatrics can sometimes tell a story with more truth than strict realism can."

Titus Andronicus
Directed by David Andrew Laws
Noelle Fair -- 'OnStage with Chris'
"If you didn’t know why this play was so fun to perform, well this production demonstrates why."

Natalie Sacks -- 'Charged.FM'
"Hamlet Isn't Dead's production...doesn't try to make Shakespeare's most violent play anything that it's not, letting this theatrical slasher shine in all its blood-stained glory."

Henry VI (Parts 1, 2, & 3)
Directed by Robin Rightmyer
Natalie Sacks -- 'Charged.FM'
"While their production may be small and low-budget, it's hard to imagine these polished performers as struggling artists."

Two Gentlemen of Verona
Directed by David Andrew Laws

David Lynn -- 'Kenyon Review'
"And this was what made me so keen: the drama and poetry so fresh, the actors so fully engaged and talented, the raw ambition of the Hamlet Isn’t Dead company.  Kudos to them all."
