Bernhardt/Hamlet Reviews

NYT CRITIC'S PICK Bernhardt/Hamlet is a vision, so clever it uplifts, so timely it hurts. Janet McTeer is riveting in this deluxe production of a breakneck backstage comedy.
Jesse Green, The New York Times
Bernhardt/Hamlet deserves to be seen twice and revived often
Robert Hofler, The Wrap
Spirited, funny new play
Greg Evans, Deadline

Summary

Mark Twain wrote: “There are five kinds of actresses: bad actresses, fair actresses, good actresses, great actresses. And then there is Sarah Bernhardt.” In 1899, the international stage celebrity set out to tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet. Theresa Rebeck’s new play from Roundabout Theatre Company rollicks with high comedy and human drama, set against the lavish Shakespearean production that could make or break Bernhardt’s career. Janet McTeer, “one of the finest classical actresses of her generation” (The Telegraph), brings the legendary leading lady to life. Directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel.
