Photo Flash: First Look At HAMLET

Get a first look at Hamlet, new theater company Shakespeare@'s inaugural production at the Grace Church Van Vorst in Jersey City. Inspired by founder and director Sean Hagerty's theatre-going experiences in the UK during his artistic training, Shakespeare@ will deliver accessible interpretations of classic works, focusing on diverse dramas with sprawling casts in a new, intimate location for each production. The production will play a limited engagement from Thursday, March 28th through Sunday, April 14th at the Grace Church Van Vorst (39 Erie Street, Jersey City - a five-minute walk from the Path Train). www.shakespeare-at.org

One of the world's most powerful, frequently interpreted, and oft-quoted dramas, Hamlet illuminates the title character's internal conflict as he navigates life after his father's murder by his uncle, who has usurped the throne. Consumed by visions of his deceased father, Hamlet is driven to madness in his quest for vengeance. Replete with ill-fated romance, bloody battles, and breathtaking soliloquies, it is no surprise that Hamlet remains at the forefront of the theatrical canon over 400 years later.

Rounding out the cast are Thia Stephan, Francis Mateo, Fernando Hernández, André Revels, Tenzin Yeshi, Mark J. Quiles, Alice Marks, Wesli Spencer, and Robert Steven Anderson. Original music for HAMLET is composed by Joan Melton. Lighting design is by Sarah Johnston, with costumes by Anne-Marie Wright and sound design by Donghyuk Chang.
