From Lisa Traiger:
"I don't normally do this but:
"If you can finagle tickets to the Hebrew Hamlet at Signature, it is mind-blowingly good, even with the subtitles. Peter Marks was there on Wednesday so expect a review on Friday, I think. [Ed.: Indeed. It's in today.] The acting, incredible, particularly Itay Tiran as Hamlet. The production, muscular and vivid, impeccably directed by Omri Nitzan. The cast, top notch. The audience sits in swivel chairs turning to follow the actors and subtitles as the action churns around you. The Hebrew, a combination of modern day vernacular and biblical and Talmudic language is well-delivered if there are any Hebrew speakers out there. The Cameri Theater of Tel Aviv shows us how compelling Shakespeare can be in the 21st century in a modern dress production that feels very real and vital, down to the boom box Ophelia carries and the Uzis Rosencrantz and Guildenstern sport."
