People who have difficulty walking may find the staircase to the main stage daunting. Not sure if there's an elevator on the premises, but come prepared for a climb.

Good production. I applaud R & G for not stumbling at Stoppard's fast pace and intricate dialog. The Player was pretty good as well, and I generally enjoyed it.

Enjoyed it. The man i the role of 'The Player' stole the show IMO.

Description

_Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is an absurdist, existentialist tragicomedy by Tom Stoppard, first staged at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1966. The play expands upon the exploits of two minor characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet,_ the courtiers Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The action of Stoppard’s play takes place mainly ‘in the wings’ of Shakespeare’s, with brief appearances of major characters from Hamlet who enact fragments of the original’s scenes. Between these episodes the two protagonists voice their confusion at the progress of events of which — occurring onstage without them in_ Hamlet_ — they have no direct knowledge.
