“Guy Adkins’ Hamlet is a revelation.” -TheaterMania

“Adkins, one of the most talented actors working in Chicago, takes the plum titular role and runs with it.” -Windy City Times

“A performance that pulls you in and doesn’t let go.” -New City

“Adkins is fiery and energetic… His portrayal makes the many who played the role before him lethargic in comparison.” -Gay Chicago Magazine

“Rushing into Hamlet as if his life depended on it, the young actor Guy Adkins gives ¬†a commanding performance of great integrity, honesty and imagination.” -Chicago Tribune.

Court Theatre Artistic Director Charles Newell will stage an emotionally aggressive production of Shakespeare’s most experimental play. Newell’s visceral interpretation will further Court’s venturous exploration of classic theatre. Court Theatre Resident Artist Guy Adkins plays the title role of Hamlet.
