Hamlet

Leavitt and co-producer Liza Seneca understand how this character strikes a universal chord, expressing a spectacular emotional range as Hamlet wrestles with life’s deepest questions. Five actors of different races, genders and ages, all play Hamlet for one act each in this groundbreaking production…

This production is a wonderful, cathartic joy.

PLAY ON! A One-Woman Musical Romp with Shakespeare’s Women

Ms. Trexler plays the piano passionately, while singing from the perspectives of iconic female characters from Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth and eight more of the Bard’s plays. She takes us through a spectrum of emotions, with occasional dramatic pauses to provide pacing. Her lyrics are full of yearning and vibrant poetry, with descriptions of eyes “such a beautiful blue,” and hopeful refrains that “in our love we can be free.” She is a natural performer, imbuing every chord, melody and sung-out phrase with vibrant emotion.

The Women of Lockerbie

The performances are utterly convincing. We believe we are watching distraught parents. The three local women help us to process the parents’ complex emotions.

At the far end of the stage, we see the backdrop of a nighttime sky filled with stars. Toward the front of the stage, we see stark leaf-less trees and rocks. The atmosphere is bleak yet lyrical.

The show’s producer, Leah Verrill, explained that the play is about the importance of allowing yourself to grieve. Astute and touching.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
