About Shakespeare on Tap
With professional actors seated on stage, scripts on music stands, and minimal sound and lighting design elements, this new series offers you the chance to come hear new and/or contemporary plays inspired by Shakespeare as you enjoy dinner and drinks.
About Bernhardt/Hamlet by Theresa Rebeck
Mark Twain wrote: “There are five kinds of actresses: bad actresses, fair actresses, good actresses, great actresses – and then there is Sarah Bernhardt.” In 1899, the international stage celebrity set out to tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet. Theresa Rebeck’s new play rollicks with high comedy and human drama, set against the lavish Shakespearean production that could make or break Bernhardt’s career.
This play just finished its Broadway run with Roundabout Theatre at the end of 2018, starring Janet Janet McTeer in the role of Sarah Bernhardt.
