Hamlet 2

Friday, February 9 - Saturday, February 10, 2024

“In the single greatest spoof on theater kids ever made, Steve Coogan gets at the “failed actor turned high school theater director” in a brilliant way. With the threat of the school cutting arts funding, Coogan must inspire kids who don’t even want to take his class in the first place. His plan is to write a blasphemous sequel to Hamlet – perhaps as a vanity piece, or maybe as a selfish means of forgiving his father. With the help of Elizabeth Shue (playing herself), he and the kids put on what is one of the most ungodly performances you can imagine, in all the best ways.” –Evan Schwartz
