On November 22nd, in the lush opulence of the James J. Hill House in St. Paul, Minnesota, the American Shakespeare Repertory will present the play which has become a cornerstone of Western literature and philosophy: The Tragedy of Hamlet is an enigma of conflicting texts, centuries of dramatic legacy, and hundreds of famous quotations which have taken on a life of themselves.
But now, as part of the Complete Readings of William Shakespeare, there is a unique opportunity to view Hamlet in the context of its creation: As a play performed among many other plays. Merely one among equals.
And yet somehow greater nonetheless.
