    I agree with Welton’s favorable assessment of this fine production with one exception: the incidental music was atrocious. The flamboyant costumes certainly suggested a royal court, but the grunge music these technical dolts supplied suggested a 1980s dive bar. I found their music intrusive every time it belched through the speakers.

    The superb text and acting made this an extremely satisfying conception of Hamlet for me. The cuts and judicious reordering rang true, as did Coleman’s committed performance — a captivating blend of contemplative and manic. The troupe as a whole gave a singularly accessible presentation of Shakespearean language and well-formed characters, I thought. Overall, Edelstein’s interpretation, scripting, and direction came together masterfully.
