From the Publisher

Hamlet is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1599 and 1601. The play, set in Denmark, recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father, the King, and then taken the throne and married Hamlet's mother. The play vividly charts the course of real and feigned madness—from overwhelming grief to seething rage—and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption.

And it was wild. Every time I try to explain how thi

The King And His Wartime Consigliere

JESSE GREEN OTHELLO BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. DIRECTED BY SAM GOLD. NEW YORK THEATER WORKSHOP. THROUGH JANUARY 18. AS BEFITS ITS all-or-nothing love story, Othello is Shakespeare’s most intense play, in part because it eschews his usual ADHD dramaturgy. The tragedy of the Moorish general who becomes a hero in his adopted land, who marries the pearl of its gentry, Desdemona, and is then gulled by his ensign, Iago, into murdering her in a jealous rage, is barely interrupted by the familiar Shakespearean sideshows. Claustrophobic and headlong instead of spacious and digressive, it confines its
