Review: In ‘Hamlet,’ Ruth Negga Rules as a Player Prince

SOLD OUT CHECK FOR TICKETS

CRITIC’S PICK!

Yaël Farber’s stunning, Dublin-born interpretation of this eternal classic finds the dizzying layers of performance that rule all our lives.

The prince is, on first impression, a small person. The title character in the Gate Theater of Dublin’s thrilling production of “Hamlet,” which opened on Monday night at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn under the inspired direction of Yaël Farber, initially registers as a fine figurine of a man, delicate of frame and feature.

Do not underestimate him. There is great stature in his sorrow and his rage. He can think circles around any hulking politician, and he moves as fast he thinks. You just know that he is always the smartest person in any room he occupies. And that this is both his blessing and his curse.

– Ben Brantley, The New York Times

‘THE JUNGLE’ Returns to St. Ann’s Warehouse! RETURNS APR 2, 2020

On Sale Now! BUY TICKETS

Last winter, the acclaimed Good Chance production of The Jungle sold out at St. Ann’s Warehouse. This Spring, after taking London, New York, and San Francisco by storm, this multi-award-winning production returns to St. Ann’s, launching a U.S. tour. 

Take a seat in the Afghan Flag restaurant. Break bread with the resilient refugees and volunteers who, in a freezing, inhospitable environment, built a warm, self-governing society out of nothing. The Jungle evokes an improvised refugee camp in Calais, France where thousands of adults and children fleeing drought, war, and civil strife sought their “good chance” passage to the U.K. By putting a human face on a global crisis, The Jungle asks why those in severe need must face great danger when crossing borders in their search for safety. The Jungle offers empathy and compassion in place of fear and punishment.
