Hamlet a Righteous Dude at Raven Playhouse
By Mary Mallory
A combination beat poetry festival and Saturday Night Live skit, Hamlet … as Told on the Street is not your daddy’s old Hamlet. This Hamlet possesses attitude and energy to burn. It’s a raucous, modern, graphic take on the Shakespearean tale that reinvigorates the story.
2AFC Productions present the premiere of Shel Silverstein’s, ‘Hamlet… As Told On The Street’ at The Raven Playhouse, NoHo Arts District.
“If you are a dreamer, come in / If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, / A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer… / If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire / For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. / Come in! / Come in!” – Shel Silverstein
