Overall my experience for this even was positive, and I am rating low for a specific reason. I have never seen Hamlot and had heard from many that this was a great Shakespeare production which for many it may have been. Unfortunately, I found the theme to be quite boring and at times hard to stay focused on production. With that said, if you like Shakespeare then this event would come recommended. Staff was friendly and greeted us at door and while entering to be seated. Plenty of parking available for even, and refreshment were available and reasonably priced. The cast did a great job so if not for the overall content of play by nature I would have rated 4 or even 5 star.
The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark is a tragedy by William Shakespeare. Set in the Kingdom of Denmark, set in a steampunk era, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet enacts on his uncle Claudius for murdering King Hamlet, Claudius’ brother and Prince Hamlet’s father, and then succeeding to the throne and taking as his wife Gertrude, the old King’s widow and Prince Hamlet’s mother. The play vividly portrays both true and feigned madness – from overwhelming sorrow to seething rage – and explores themes of treachery, revenge, moral curruption and family.
