One Man Hamlet

Actor Guy Roberts, Artistic Director of the Prague Shakespeare Festival, is now performing HAMLET, in a solo performance presented by the Classical Theatre Company, in Houston. The show is directed by John Johnston and Guy Roberts and plays in the HITS space on W 18th St., in the Heights.  We saw it Monday.  Roberts is terrific.  He is physically and vocally skilled and obviously knows this text inside out.  He performs only those scenes that include Hamlet himself, or which he overhears.  His text is among the clearest I've heard.  I heard every joke and understood every beat.  It's a remarkable, lovely show.
