About This Show

In the wake of his father’s abrupt death, Hamlet returns home from university to find his personal and political world changed as he never imagined it could be — his mother remarried, his uncle on the throne, and a world seemingly gone insane. When his father’s ghost appears and demands vengeance, the increasingly desperate Danish prince must decide between submission and resistance…acceptance and vengeance…and life and death.

Michael Urie (Ugly Betty) stars as Hamlet under the direction of Michael Kahn. Together they give life to one of the greatest characters of Western literature as he walks the line between madness and inspiration.
