Have you been doing too much reading? Have you been cooped up inside for too long? Lucky for you, the Spotlighters Theatre has the perfect remedy for both! From November 26th through December 19th, the theater will be performing “Stage Blood,” a play within a play (within a play).
In the play, an acting troop perform Hamlet as things backstage begin to mirror the actions of the play. If you aren’t up for the real version of Hamlet, or just want a short but hilarious version of the original, this mix of murder, infidelity, and betrayal is sure to be a great fix.
