     A totally subversive twist on Shakespeare's classic tragedy, I AM HAMLET presents the tale of the troubled Prince of Denmark as a one man show!  That's right -- through the use of a dizzying array of lightning-fast costume changes, mask work, songs, video, puppeteering, and other magical stage techniques, one actor portrays all the famous characters of HAMLET in a fast-paced, edgy, and oh so hip theatrical extravaganza that still retains much of Shakespeare's original text.
     This totally unique project made its world premiere at the Well's College Theatre in Auburn, New York in the Winter of 2009 and is currently touring throughout North America with critically acclaimed productions in Boston and Toronto.
     Conceived, adapted, and directed by European-trained Shakespearean director and theatre educator Joe Siracusa, I AM HAMLET features the acting talents of internationally renowned actor/singer Brian Morey in this one man tour de force.
     The Buffalo engagement of I AM HAMLET runs May 20th through June 5th with performances Thursdays at 7:30pm and Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm.  General admission is $15.00 or $10.00 for students, seniors, and Subversive Theatre members.  Admission to all Thursday shows are pay-what-you-can.  All performances are at Subversive Theatre's regular performance venue, The Manny Fried Playhouse at 255 Great Arrow Avenue on the third floor of North Buffalo's Great Arrow Building.
     Reservations are not available.  Seating is instead offered on a first-come-first-served basis with doors opening one half hour before each performance.
