Hamlet: A Steampunk Tragedy

When: Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 2:30 p.m. Continues through March 4 2018

Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the tale of a Danish prince tormented by despair, insanity and a drive for vengeance, has been inspiring the minds and exhausting the hearts of theater-goers and readers alike for centuries. Really any chance to see a production of perhaps the Bard’s best play is a chance to see its psychological, philosophical and dramatic nuances in a new light. Certainly, when a troupe brings a new twist to bear on the classic, it’s worth checking out — whether you’ve seen a hundred adaptions or are seeking your first dance with the delirious tragedy. This weekend, the Vex continues its run of the revenge and madness-fueled play, giving it a quirky update via a steampunk theme.

Price: $15-$23
