He doesn't know where he got it,
that fiery frog inside him,
the rebel devil burning him up,
cause he can't recognize the punk-rock soul
inside this society-matron shell.
- Gertrude, God Save Gertrude

God Save Gertrude
by Deborah Stein

Directed by Valory J. Lawrence
Starring LisaMarie Harrison
and her real-life son, David Cole as well as
Brooke Markham and Drew Barrios

A rock concert with characters, God Save Gertrude is a punk rock riff on Hamlet in which Queen Gertrude is transplanted to a war-torn country a little like Russia and a bit like our own. As the bombs rain down and her coked-up son sells out to MTV, Gertrude sings about her many men and her many mistakes, hoping to incite one more riot before she goes.

What's Next at CoHo
Hamlet by William Shakespeare

January 15-February 20 @ CoHo Theater

With this brisk, exciting new cut, the play focuses on the familial themes of Hamlet. The trimming shortens the overall play and gives a sharp focus to the plot lines that directly tell the story. With a company of five actors and minimal tech, this is Hamlet in its essence. Without excessive technical distractions or out-of-context ideals (post-Apocalypse, No, thank you!), this version of Hamlet will remind you why you fell in love with this play in the first place.
