About this show

There's nothing wrong with Hamlet that a drink and a gun won't fix! Noir Hamlet is a wild reimagining of the Shakespeare classic. The action takes place at various locations in and around Los Angeles. The year is 1949. There's never a good time to find yourself on the roof, 12 flights above the sidewalk, not sure if you're alone. Will Hamlet get the better of rival detective Paolo Niro, discover the truth of his father's death, keep his mother Gertrude from marrying the guy who may have aced him, and hold on to the love of his secretary, Rae Chio? It's a case with more twists than a gallows necktie, and Hamlet will be lucky to keep his own neck out of the squeezer.
