I love Shakespeare and I love unique and fun plays. Bat-Hamlet is an awesome mixture of both. I wish I had known about it earlier because I have so many friends who would have loved this. For those of us who grew up with the Adam West Batman series, and then later made fun of it as we grew older, this play has a ton of references and gags. The whole homo-erotic subtext is played upon throughout the play, with great gusto. There are also comic book and movie references, something for every kind of Batman fan. Bat-Hamlet gives a "Shatneresque" performance that would put old Bill to shame. Ophelia has these facial expressions that make her characterization hilarious, and she is one hell of a villianness. Horatio displays some great acrobatic moves and is the perfect sidekick to Bat-Hamlet. I hope that the Cornservatory decides to bring this back sometime in the near future, because the interest in it is huge. This was a great night out - watching a fun play in an small theater, and seeing great actors who love what they do. I've already started following their Facebook page - Shakespeare's Star Wars is coming next!
Quotes & Highlights
- “Pulliam wisely puts his superhero lore before his classical writ, resulting in a text no sillier than mandated by its genre, while Kallie Noelle Rolison’s deftly directs an athletic cast that sprints through its paces (including Orion Couling’s spectacular action scenes) with olympic stamina and unwavering characterizations.” -_"Windy City Times":http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/THEATER-REVIEW-Bat-Hamlet/46860.html_
- “People who would like this show are people who like mind-blowing transformations, [and] awesome fights… People should go see this show because it is awesome and hilarious. I was laughing basically throughout the entire thing.” —Ada Grey Reviews For You
