“Like a singer sliding into a different key, Fitzpatrick’s Hamlet nimbly dances the line between clarity and craziness….it’s a triumph.”

Russ Tarby, Eagle Bulletin

“The often successful Central New York Playhouse Hamlet, unfolding in stylized contemporary dress and design with an interesting use of projections, bravely scratches beneath the surface….This is the beating heart of community theater.” 

Len Fonte, syracuse.com

Our May Shakespeare is back this year with Hamlet. Hamlet’s world is ripped apart after one parent’s untimely death and the other’s hasty remarriage, and the young prince’s heart and mind wrestle for control in a tormented quest to uncover the truth.
