ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Hamlet. From Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, a handful of players perform this timeless classic. Hamlet explores political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humor. 21 year-old actor Joshua McGuire in the title role captures the youthful and less jaded aspects of Hamlet’s personality rarely seen in more traditional interpretations. In just two and a half hours, this production embraces the theatre of Shakespeare’s day by returning to the roots of performance, with actors playing multiple characters. Humorous and boisterous, the Globe Company packs an emotional wallop with their inherent theatricality.
