Janet McTeer, Dylan Baker, and Company of Bernhardt/Hamlet Celebrate Opening Night
Roundabout Theatre Company celebrated their world-premiere production of Theresa Rebeck's Bernhardt/Hamlet, starring Tony winner Janet McTeer as Sarah Bernhardt. Directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, the limited engagement is set to run through November 11. See photos from the red carpet in the gallery below.
Rebeck's new Roundabout-commissioned play is a comedy set against a lavish Shakespearean production that could make or break Bernhardt's career. Joining McTeer are Dylan Baker as Constant Coquelin and Jason Butler Harner as Edmond Rostand, with Matthew Saldivar as Alphonse Mucha, Nick Westrate as Maurice, Tony Carlin as Louis, Ito Aghayere as Rosamond, Brittany Bradford as Lysette, Aaron Costa Ganis as Raoul, and Triney Sandoval as Francois.
The creative team includes Beowulf Boritt (set design), Toni-Leslie James (costume design), Bradley King (lighting design), and Fitz Patton (original music and sound design).
