 Jean Weidner Theatre, Weidner Center for the Performing Arts
 
Hamlet is a challenge for any actor, but when Jessica is cast as the title character in a NYC production she endures the “slings and arrows” (and advice) of dubious experts, in addition to making Sir Patrick Stewart her nemesis. Can she figure out “to be or not to be” by opening night? Women Playing Hamlet is fun for Shakespeare fans and everyone else.
Recommended for ages 12 and older.
