Return of the Dane

My good friend Christopher Carter Sanderson is bringing his Hamlet to the New York theatre -- via his company, Gorilla Repertory Theatre. It's been too long, Gorillas!

Anyway, here's the poop:


Gorilla Repertory Theater Company, Inc. returns to production in New York and begins its 15th anniversary season with an indoor workshop production of Hamlet, in which the text is completely uncut and admission is free of charge.

Founding artistic director Christopher Carter Sanderson will direct the production, which stars recent Yale School of Drama graduate Jacob H. Knoll as Hamlet; Frances You (last seen opposite Sandra Oh in the film Double Happiness) as Ophelia; Larry Weeks (Shakespeare in the
Park(ing) Lot) as Claudius; Beth McGuire (Professor, Yale School of Drama) as Gertrude; Jeff Barry (recent Yale School of Drama graduate) as Horatio; and Jy Murphy (long-time Gorilla Rep veteran and star of The Countess off-Broadway) as First Player/Gravedigger.

Hamlet will run May 9-29 at the Roy Arias Theatre Center, Times Square Arts Center, 300 West 43rd Street at Eighth Avenue. Admission is free, although donations will be accepted after the performance. There is no intermission, although easy access to and from bathrooms and
concessions will be available throughout the performance. Seating is first-come, first-served. No reservations except for members of the press. For more information, see

Wednesday & Thursday, May 9-10, 8:00 PM

Leonard, you're a Pagan God. I love your blog and thanks for the plug. It is a great pleasure to be back on the boards with Gorilla Rep and I hope everyone who has enjoyed our work over the years comes out for the HAMLET uncut workshop launch. Thanks!
