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 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.
Bernhardt/Hamlet stars Janet McTeer as “Sarah Bernhardt,” Dylan Baker as “Constant Coquelin” and Jason Butler Harner as “Edmond Rostand.” The cast also includes Matthew Saldivar as “Alphonse Mucha,” Nick Westrate as “Maurice,” Tony Carlin as “Louis,” Ito Aghayere as “Rosamond,” Brittany Bradford as “Lysette,” Aaron Costa Ganis as “Raoul” and Triney Sandoval as “Francois.”
The creative team includes Beowulf Boritt (Set Design),
Toni-Leslie James (Costume Design), Bradley King (Lighting Design) and
Fitz Patton (Original Music and Sound Design).
