Street parking is available though it can be a bit tricky to find. We managed to park about 2 blocks from the theater at 5 minutes before showtime.

Description

By William Shakespeare

Directed by* *Kit Wilder

One of the greatest plays by the world’s greatest playwright, Hamlet pits the white-hot rebellion of youth against the stale propriety of expectation and tradition. With his father the King of Denmark newly dead, and his mother the Queen newly married to his father’s usurping brother, young prince Hamlet is hurtled down a course of murder, discovery, and vengeance that strips him of love, of family, and of his own fragile identity. City Lights’ modern-day Hamlet is a contemporary psychological thriller – a hot-blooded look at how one young man battles a world of falsehood and condemnation.
