ANNIE’S SHAKESPEARE SHAKEDOWN
For an inventive immersive theater experience you might want to visit Solas in the East Village at 232 East 9th Street where director Annie Kaup envisions Hamlet as a young Princess
trying to unravel the mystery of her father’s death. The show will run on Friday evenings beginning March 6th, which is opening night, for six consecutive Fridays with tickets ranging in from $40-$90.
As the tale unfolds two months after the death of the dear departed King Hamlet, the country is ready for celebration and a new King. You are cordially invited to the Celebration of the Grand Coronation of the New King Claudius. But something is rotten in the state of Denmark and hidden in the winds of change are whispers of treachery, deceit, and bloody murder. Join us for a night of revelry, and help the young Princess Hamlet unravel the mystery of her father’s death.
Immerse yourself as actors spin wildly through the party, blending Shakespeare’s poetry with improvisational interactions – soliciting advice, inciting mischief and even inviting you to play along. Pay tribute to King Claudius. Have a drink with Horatio. Listen to Ophelia’s songs. Get advice from Polonius. Steal a dance with the Gravedigger. Come to castle Elsinore and become a part of the show!
