The newly-launched Ottawa Shakespeare Company (OSC) brings its “Shakespeare re:mixed” Hamlet2011 as the first-ever production “previewing” the brand-new Centrepointe Studio Theatre from April 26 to May 7, 2011, before the venue’s official opening in the fall of 2011. Hamlet2011, directed by Charles McFarland, starsHamlet2011 stars Michael Mancini as Hamlet and Andy Massingham doubling as Claudius and the Ghost, with actors Katie Bunting, Peter James Haworth, Tania Levy, Brad Long, Stavros Sakiadis, Scott Angus Wilson and Robert Welch rounding out the cast.
Take this most-famous of all plays, give it a modern look, add rock-opera “mash-ups” of bands like Arcade Fire (no kidding) and Florence + The Machine, and you’ve got theatre that will appeal to the Twilight generation and completely pulverize any musty notion of Shakespeare which you picked up in English class. A must see show!
