New Play Bernhardt/Hamlet To Begin Previews Tonight On Broadway

Bernhardt HamletRaise your hand if you can name the first woman to perform the role of Hamlet? Well if you guessed Sarah Siddons, then your hand should be raised high in the air. Now, can you name the first woman to play Hamlet on film?

If you guessed Sarah Bernhardt, then you would be right once again theatre fans.Which brings me to the topic of today's blog. Bernhardt/Hamlet, a new play by Theresa Rebeck (Seminar, Dead Accounts), is set to begin previews at the American Airlines Theatre on August 31, with opening night scheduled for September 25.

As of now, the show is set to close on November 18, but with all Roundabout Theatre shows, it will probably extend a week or two if the reviews are good.Starring Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominee Janet McTeer (A Doll's House, Albert Nobbs), Bernhardt/Hamlet takes place in 1899 where the acclaimed actress prepares to take on her most challenging role to date.

Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark. Directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Present Laughter, Hand To God), Bernhardt/Hamlet stars Tony Award nominee Dylan Baker (The Front Page), Jason Bartlet Harner (The Crucible), Mathew Saldivar (Junk), Nick Westrate (Tribes), Paxton Whitehead (The Importance of Being Ernest), Ito Aghayere (Familliar), Brittany Bradford (For Colored Girls), Aaron Costa Ganis (House of Cards), and Triney Sandoval (Marvin's Room).
