Shakespeare and Company’s Hamlet Reading

hamlet-posterctitbmrwcai4k-dAs a theatrical experience, play readings evoke the audience’s imagination as the actors recreate a play through their skills and the audience’s attention.  Kevin Coleman, the director  of this staged reading, promises it  will include action. Is Hamlet possible without the final duel?

On Saturday, October 8 at 7 PM, Shakespeare and Company is presenting the reading of Hamlet with Finn Wittrock as Hamlet. Finn, along with his brother Dylan and other children of Shakespeare and Company, grew up staging their versions of plays in  which their parents  performed.  Now an acclaimed television and stage actor, he will be joined by some of his former playmates and other actors of the company for the reading, including Jonathan Epstein (Claudius), Elizabeth Aspenlieder (Gertrude), Malcolm Ingram (Polonius), Rory Hammond (Guildenstern),  Dylan Wittrock  (Rosencrantz),  Kate  Abbruzzee  (Ophelia), Thomas Brazzle (Laertes), Caroline Calkins,  David Joseph, and others.

Bob and I were fortunate to get an idea of what the reading will be like when we interviewed Keven Coleman and Elizabeth Aspenlieder.
