I wanted to share one of the reviews Hamlet received. It was a wonderful experience, and the cast was unbelievable to work with. I was told over and over again, "For the first time, I understood Shakespeare." That's about as good as it gets for me.
"Ensemble Shakespeare gets it. Their latest production of Hamlet is a stark and raw endeavor that lays bare the language and emotion of the story. The adaptation by Brian White pares things down to the essentials while keeping the poetry of the original intact. You could hear the sighs of recognition in the audience as one after another popular expression or monologue was uttered, so much has the Bard’s language entered our vernacular. What was extraordinary was how the actors made sense of every word, enabling the audience to dive into the emotion of every moment."
