Broadway’s Best returns to Great Performances in May, raising the curtain with Hamlet from The Public Theater’s Free Shakespeare in the Park at The Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Experience this Shakespearean classic directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon featuring Tony Award nominee Ato Blankson-Wood (“Slave Play”) in the title role and Solea Pfeiffer as Ophelia (“Hadestown”). Set in a desolate post-George Floyd world, this contemporary production is a present-day take on the Bard’s tale of family and betrayal.
