What an incredible atmosphere! The cast was superb and the sword fight at the end was worth the 3 hours of the show! We would go again and have reccommended it to all of our friends!

Hollywood Forever Cemetery and Tall Blonde Productions present the first annual “Shakespeare in the Cemetery” event, William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, directed by Brianna Lee Johnson. New York may have “Shakespeare in the Park” but Los Angelenos will now have a new way to experience the Bard’s work, as the Hollywood Forever Cemetery will be presenting two of Shakespeare’s classics in their park every summer. Audiences are invited to arrive early, bring a picnic dinner to enjoy, a blanket to sit on and friends with which to share an inspiring evening. Dinner and a play have never been quite like this!
