Only a few parking spaces at the theatre, but plenty of street parking. If you'd like to combine the theatre with dining or shopping, consider parking at the free garage over the Harris Teeter in Shirlington Village. There's a walking bridge directly across from that over Four Mile Run, a 5 minute walk to the theatre.

Parking can be a bit of a challenge so give yourself enough time to walk a couple of blocks.

Re the Multi-Media Production of Hamlet at Theatre on the Run:

An excellent production with some wonderfully strong performers. The actor portraying Hamlet is outstanding.

Recommended!

A very strong cast for the most part. The lead was exceptionally strong.

Description

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Michael Ryan Fernandez

Firebelly Productions sees _Hamlet _through new eyes, new lenses… taking Hamlet down to its core: a bloodthirsty ghost story about revenge and madness. The original text is made accessible to everyone with a production style that highlights the betrayal, paranoia, and vengeance that surrounds the characters. To accent this, Director Fernandez uses live video, on stage, to heighten Hamlet’s paranoia and to fully immerse the audience in this exceptional story and its true-to-life characters. “Madness in great ones must not unwatch’d go.” Who is watching?

Featuring: John Bonner, Matthew Friedman, Steven J. Hoochuk, Jon Jon Johnson, Sonia Justl, Sean Kinslow, Charley Mann, Theresee McNichol, Charles St. Charles, Shelby Sours, and Arturo Tolentino.
