This Tony Award-winner is a tragicomedy of Shakespearean proportions! Known for their minor roles in Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are at the center of the story this time, finding themselves continually befuddled by their circumstances, never sure of what they’re supposed to be doing. Here, in the scenes behind the Hamlet story, the duo hilariously questions their every action, feeling like maybe they are being manipulated (they are) but worrying that to resist may be interfering with fate. Whether you’re a Hamletlover or not, this is a comedy that will tickle your funny bone while making you wonder if any of us are actually the star of our own story.
