The City Theatre Company presents Hamlet with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
The City Theatre presents a first-time performance event: Redux in Rep: Hamlet with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. Two of the most famous plays of all time, both known in classic tragedy and modern comedy, performed in a full repertory production, and rotating each night with the same company portraying the same cast of characters.
- Hamlet: A murdered king. A usurped prince. A promise of revenge. Indisputably, one of the greatest works of all time, William Shakespeare’s tragedy has captivated audiences for over four hundred years. The story of a young man forced by circumstance into a world of distrust, madness, and betrayal in his relentless pursuit of the very nature of who he is and the profound human question, “to be or not to be?” (Playing March 10, 12, 17, 19 (3 pm), 23, 25, 26 (8 pm), 31, and April 2)
- Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead: Tony and Academy Award winning playwright Tom Stoppard is a theatrical genius in his wild tragicomedy masterpiece that turns Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy Hamlet upside down, as two lesser known characters battle wits, existentialism, free will, and a pirate here and there. (Playing March 11, 16, 18, 19 (8 pm), 24, 26 (3 pm), 30, and April 1)
