To go or not to go? Is that really a question? Hey, Hamlet is Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, thought by some to be the greatest play of all time. So it’s one you shouldn’t miss.
Hamlet is a monster part — 1,500 lines to learn, one of the largest roles ever created — and Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s Brent Vimtrup, now in his fourth season with the classic theater group, has the chops to make the depressed, indecisive Prince of Denmark a performance to remember.
He’s joined by veterans Sherman Fracher as his fickle mother, quickly remarried to his murderous uncle, played by Bruce Cromer
