Hamlet is … heavy. There, we said it. But Breakneck Hamlet, adapted and performed by Timothy Mooney, is “recklessly sliced” from Shakespeare’s original, cutting the four-hour play down to a single hour with a single actor. Where Shakespeare saw melancholy moodiness, Mooney sees Hamlet as a cunning chameleon, full of intellect and a wicked sense of humor. All the extraneous stuff is stripped away from the story, leaving you with a delicate and dangerous political battle between two powerful players fighting over who gets to be king. You still get the classic play’s best speeches, and the rest of the plot is filled in with hilarious summaries and pantomime. Don’t miss this head-spinningly fun spin through one of history’s greatest theatrical works.
