Theater Thursdays: Hamlet
July 11th, 2013 by Chris Furino
July 18th – August 4th / The Meadow at Johns Hopkins University’s Evergreen Museum
Considered by many to be Shakespeare’s greatest work, Hamlet is a tragedy of murder and revenge on the fringes of sanity. The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory will run this production at two different venues from July 13th to August 4th. Baltimore Shakespeare Factory’s Hamlet runs for one weekend indoors and three weekends outdoors in the Meadow at the Evergreen Library and Museum. These outdoor performances will be held rain or shine. So, bring your own chair and an umbrella for shade or sprinkles. In the event of heavy rain or storms, shows will be held and the company will attempt to restart if possible. If weather does not permit, or for any other reason, cancellations will be announced no sooner than 2 hours prior to curtain on the company’s website. Guests are also welcome to picnic on the lawn prior to and during the show. Finally, on August 3rd, join the company for a special “Marathon on the Meadow” where patrons can view the company’s productions of “Hamlet” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
