Attending performances at this outdoor amphitheater is a tradition for many St. Louis families.

It's 40 years later, and all the dead Hamlet characters have graduated from Limbo to Purgatory. Seems there's been a bit of a backlog. Hamlet Senior is ancient and over it. Polonius is befuddled, as ever. Rosencrantz feels like a nitwit, Guildenstern blames Rosencrantz. Ophelia is innocent and furious, Gertrude is spitting mad. Claudius is contrite to the point that you want to smack him. Written by Jeanmarie Simpson, this new divine comedy is revealed publicly for the first time.
