Waterwell’s dual-language adaptation of Hamlet is set to open Off-Broadway at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture May 21 after beginning preview performances May 10. A trio of Tony nominees star in the production: Arian Moayed takes on the title role, alongside Sherie Rene Scott and Micah Stock as Gertrude and Horatio, respectively.
The production, directed by Tom Ridgely, presents Shakespeare’s drama in both English and Farsi. The staging sets the action in Persia on the eve of World War I and incorporates traditional Persian and modern western elements.
