American Shakespeare Repertory The Complete Readings of William Shakespeare COMPLETE READING #18 -
HAMLET On November 22nd, in the lush opulence of the James J. Hill House in St. Paul, Minnesota, the
American Shakespeare Repertory will present the play which has become a cornerstone of Western literature and philosophy:
The Tragedy of Hamlet is an enigma of conflicting texts, centuries of dramatic legacy, and hundreds of famous quotations which have taken on a life of themselves. But now, as part of the Complete Readings of William Shakespeare, there is a unique opportunity to view
Hamlet in the context of its creation: As a play performed among many other plays. Merely one among equals. And yet somehow greater nonetheless. NOVEMBER 22nd, 2010 @ 7:30 PM Tickets: Pay What You Can!
