To Sing Or Not To Sing….that is the question.
Denmark. 1582. The King is dead. His brother ascends the throne and takes his sister in law as a wife. But when the dead king’s son returns, armed with revenge and an electric guitar, all of the kingdom will say that there’s something rockin’ in the state of Denmark.
Rockabye Hamlet is one of many scores written by acclaimed Canadian composer Cliff Jones (Hey, Marilyn! and Babies) and features such songs as “He Got It In The Ear,” “Something’s Rotten in Denmark,” “Your Daddy’s Gone Away,” “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Boogie,” and many more.
Rockabye Hamlet was also one of the shorter-lived Broadway musicals of the 1970s, running less than a week. Now, an all-star Broadway cast comes together to give audiences a glimpse into the raucous, rocking twist on Shakespeare that took Broadway by storm 42 years ago!
