Alley Repertory Theater presents Bernhardt/Hamlet


by Theresa Rebeck

“It is delightful to undress a man, and find a woman inside.” – Edmond, Act I, Scene ii

In 1899, the legendary international stage celebrity Sarah Bernhardt sets out to tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet.   Ms. Bernhardt’s decision to assume the title role of Shakespeare’s Hamlet left critics and patriarchs aghast and indignant. Laced with forbidden romance and backstage gossip, Theresa Rebeck’s new play is a behind-the-scenes look at Bernhardt’s most daring role, set against the lavish Shakespearean production that could make or break Bernhardt’s career.  High humor and human drama collide in a rollicking comedy “so clever it uplifts, so timely it hurts” (The New York Times)
