Photo Flash: First Look at Promethean Theatre Ensemble's ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD
Promethean Theatre Ensemble presents the second play of their 2013/2014 season, Tom Stoppard's ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD. ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN features PTE ensemble member Nick Lake and Special Guest Artist Tom McGrath. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
PTE Artistic Director Beth Wolf will set Tom Stoppard's classic re-imagining of Hamlet in a Steampunk world, the unique visual aesthetic that typically blends Victorian elements with steam-powered machinery, clockwork, and gears. The Steampunk aesthetic blends worlds - both the past and an imagined future - just as Stoppard blends the traditional with the unknown.
