“Acted with sublime ferocity . . . An experience so intense and concentrated that you’ll feel as though you were part of the action.” —Wall Street Journal

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. New York’s Bedlam Theater frames Shakespeare’s famously untamable tragedy with fresh verve and ferocity. Committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience—reconfigured during intermission—Bedlam bring its viewers into direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of theater. In this meditation on consciousness, ritual, and free will, active environment and storytelling become paramount. The result is a kinetic experience of shared empathy that the New York Times calls “a level of insight that is usually arrived at only through years of close reading and exploratory performance.”

Important Seating Information: Bedlam Theater’s Hamlet has seating changes during each of the three acts. During Act 1, 60 audience members will be seated on stage surrounding the actors; for Act 2, everyone returns to their purchased seat in the theater; for Act 3, 60 individuals will once again be seated onstage as members of the court. No participation will be required from those seated onstage.
