How was your experience?
Once again, OPFT does Shakespeare better than the big guys. This Hamlet was 100 times better than CST's and Writers' productions a few years ago. The actor who played Hamlet was excellent, and the correct age, unlike both of those other productions. I very much liked the Prohibition Era setting and costumes; it worked very well. The airplanes started about 9:45 and 2 loud ones drowned out the final (death) scene. Perhaps they should consider changing the curtain to 7:30, instead of 8, so that doesn't happen. Sound was otherwise great, previous problem (as mentioned by another reviewer) must have been corrected.
