By William Shakespeare
Directed by Caroline Watson-Felt
90 Lafayette Street, Salem MA
One of William Shakespeare’s most beautiful, thoughtful, and sad tragedies, Hamlet tells the story of a young man who discovers and loses himself all at the same time as he seeks revenge for the murder of his father. Staged in the intimate black box space the production allows audience members to truly take part in Hamlet’s tragic journey of self-discovery while he is unable to reconcile loss, love, anger and the dark corners of one’s mind.
This production of Hamlet marks the final performance at 90 Lafayette Street, a space SalemTheatre has called home for the last five years. The company packs up at the end of the run and will set down new roots just one block away in a prime, raw space at Shetland Park on Congress Street.
Directed by Caroline Watson-Felt with design by Tom Wilwerth, Kim Feener, Will Petrillo and Jeffrey Lay, and Stage Managed by Kat Moulison. Hamlet features performances by Michael Blunt, Meghan Brown , Colin Colford, Amy Courage, Jenney Dale, Katelynn Devorak, Alex DeRoo, Diana Dunlap, Elena Faverio, Linda Goetz, Kyle Gregory, Anita Harkess, Billy Jenkins, Andrew LeBlanc, Francis Norton, Sam Nudler, Tom Rash, Dave Rich, Sophie Leiton Toomey, Karin Trachtenberg, and Ariel Zuckerman.
