Comments Red Theater's co-Artistic Directors Wyatt Kent and Clare Brennan: "Our 23/24 production of Hamlet places Shakespeare's classic tragedy in an intimate, in-the-round setting. We're thrilled to have textual powerhouse Ashley Fox as our lead, around whom a knockout cast brings this story straight into the current day. Our design team features some of the finest conceptual talent on display in Chicago storefront theater, including Jeff Award nominees Rose Johnson and Sebby Woldt. This spring, we can't wait to invite audiences to get up close and personal with your ghosts."

The production team includes Tessa Huber (Stage Manager), Sean William Kelly (Assistant Director), Rose Johnson (Scenic Design), Jamie Macpherson (Fight & Intimacy Design), Madeline Felauer (Costume Design), Derryll Lyall (Lighting Design), Sebby Woldt (Sound Design), Andy Cahoon (Technical Direction + Props Design), Meredith Ernst (Text Coach), Becca Holloway (Casting Director), and Clare Brennan (Producer).
