Hudson Theatre Works Presents "Hamlet"

originally published: 01/30/2020

Hudson Theatre Works Presents "Hamlet"(WEEHAWKEN, NJ) -- Hudson Theatre Works prsents Hamlet from February 13 through March 1. In the Shakespeare classic, Hamlet, heir to the throne of Denmark, is called home from his studies in Wittenberg, to attend the funeral of his father, the king, who has died suddenly. Already overwhelmed by grief, he soon discovers that his father was, in fact, murdered in his sleep by Hamlet’s uncle, Claudius, who has now married Hamlet’s mother and been crowned king. With these single acts of treachery and deceit, the world that Hamlet knew so well, has disappeared, and become a broken mirror of itself. 

Hudson Theatre Works once again brings to life a legendary play by Shakespeare.  After its successful run of Macbeth to inaugurate its new performing space at 80 Hauxhurst Avenue in Weehawken, NJ., Hudson Theatre Works takes on this most iconic of English language plays.  Performing in its intimate space, 10 actors cover the full range of characters.
