Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead Presented By the Woodward Shakespeare Festival

by Terrance McArthur

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead at the Woodward Shakespeare Festival is…
It’s like…
If you watch one of those food contests on TV where they give the chefs a strange set of ingredients and tell them to make something delicious, someone might tell the judges they have made a deconstructed dish, where the parts are disconnected and have to be mixed by the diner. Rosencrantz & Guildenstern is Tom Stoppard’s deconstructed Hamlet, pulling apart the Shakespeare masterwork and seeing what the audience will make of it.
