Theatre Review: The Mountaintop

How do you represent one of the greatest Americans to ever live on stage?

Hamlet Premieres January 14 on WCVE PBS

Mon, 01/11/2016 - 11:49am -- WCVE

From Quill Theatre – Quill Theatre explores Hamlet through an alternate lens. Following a 200-year-old tradition of female Hamlets, Richmond’s award-winning actress, Molly Hood, takes on the title role. Shakespeare lays bare his character’s nobility and fallibility and, in that spirit, this production will investigate the implications of a modern woman as heir to an ancient throne.
