Shakespeare Redress: Joe Papp's Naked Hamlet 1968

Monday, January 8, 2018 6 PM New York Public Library for the Performing Arts
URL Copied
Fifty years ago, Joe Papp—the restless, young champion of free Shakespeare for all—responded to the angst of the nation with a radical reinvention of Hamlet. All actors were, in fact, fully clothed, but the traditions and pretentions of past generations were stripped off. The Shakespeare Society excavates Naked Hamlet from the archives, with an evening of reconstructed scenes, photos, rarely heard recordings, and recitations from Papp’s personal papers.
