Tickets to “Hamlet” at the Duke on 42nd Street Theater, $75, at duke.new42.org
For those of you who haven’t touched a verse of iambic pentameter since your High School English class, it is time to brush up on the classics. What better than a story of a tortured prince and tale of political corruption for troubled times?
This is not the only critically acclaimed version of “Hamlet” playing right now. The Matadero in Madrid is showing a version with one of Spain’s best known actresses, Blanca Portillo, playing the prince of Denmark.
