Up On The Marquee: BERNHARDT/HAMLET Arrives on Broadway
Roundabout Theatre Company's premiere of Theresa Rebeck's Bernhardt/Hamlet, directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, is hard at play on Broadway! Check out the play's marquee at the American Airlines Theatre!
The cast also includes Matthew Saldivar as "Alphonse Mucha," Nick Westrateas "Maurice," Paxton Whitehead as "Louis," Ito Aghayere as "Rosamond," Brittany Bradford as "Lysette," Aaron Costa Ganis as "Raoul" and Triney Sandoval as "Francois."
Mark Twain wrote, "There are five kinds of actresses: bad actresses, fair actresses, good actresses, great actresses. And then there is Sarah Bernhardt." In 1899, the international stage celebrity set out to tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet. Theresa Rebeck's new play rollicks with high comedy and human drama, set against the lavish Shakespearean production that could make or break Bernhardt's career. Janet McTeer brings the legendary leading lady to life.
