Hamlet

April 17

June 9, 2019

CST’s Courtyard Theater

by William Shakespeare
directed by Barbara Gaines

 

The Play

For the first time in more than twenty years, Artistic Director Barbara Gaines returns to Shakespeare’s enduring masterpiece of revenge, passion, and deception. Playing the ill-fated prince of Denmark is Maurice Jones (Broadway’s The Lifespan of a Fact opposite Daniel Radcliffe, Romeo and Juliet starring Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad, Julius Caesar with Denzel Washington). Electrifying performances by an outstanding 20-member cast combine with inventive staging to ignite Shakespeare’s poetry in CST’s uniquely personal Courtyard Theater—making your night out one to remember!
