Rockabye Hamlet

Music, Lyrics, and Book by Cliff Jones
Directed by Pep Speed

It's the summer of 1971, and Haight-Ashbury's favorite theater troupe have just arrived on a Chevy van to share their unique take on Shakespeare's classic tale of love, loss, and finding your place in a world gone "rotten." After enjoying sell-out runs in Toronto, Montreal, New York and Los Angeles and winning eight international awards in the 1970s and 1980s, this legendary re-imagining of Hamlet has been revised and updated for the 21st Century. Filled with memorable rock grooves and a heart as big as its hair, Rockabye Hamlet is a cult and critical mega-hit not to be missed.
