Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Hamlet Prince of Cuba By William Shakespeare Adapted by Michael Donald Edwards

South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center Presents an Open Access Theater Series Production of Hamlet Prince of Cuba with Audio Description and Pre-show Touch Tour

Hamlet’s intense struggle to understand the meaning in human life has captivated playgoers for more than 400 years. Now, Miami audiences will be among the first to see a distinctively Cuban Hamlet, which reveals new perspectives on the classic work, while staying true to the essence of Shakespeare’s original story. This new adaptation is a fresh and stunning portrayal of a son’s struggle to pursue justice for his father, and the consequences that threaten to destroy the lives of those he loves.

Contains moderate violence.
