Dept. of Drama and Dance Performance Calendar

Hamlet

March 2 through 12
Hamlet
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Christopher Dippel
Performed on the new Hofstra Globe stage, which will be the most authentic reconstruction of the Globe this side of the Atlantic. As relevant today as it was over 400 years ago, Hamlet is a revenge tragedy like no other. When Hamlet learns the truth about his father’s “foul and most unnatural” death, he reflects on his life – past, present and future; mortal and immortal – and provokes us to do the same.

Dates/Times:
Friday, March 3 and 10, at 8 p.m.
Saturday, March 4 and 11, at 8 p.m.
Sunday, March 5 and 12, at 2 p.m.
Thursday, March 2, at 8 p.m. – Join us for a reception at 6 p.m. and a post-show talkback with cast and crew.
