"Academy Award nominee Paul Giamatti returns to the Yale Rep stage as the Prince of Denmark in Hamlet, Shakespeare’s harrowing tragedy of corruption, betrayal, and madness," according to press notes. "Haunted by a ghostly revelation that his father, the King, was murdered, Hamlet puts into motion a vengeful plan that will have devastating consequences for his family and the kingdom."
This production is part of Shakespeare for a New Generation, a national program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
