Thank you, Everyone who joined us for Hamlet this summer. 
In case you missed it, here is some of the unsolicited audience response:
"A magically directed Hamlet, timely and timeless."
"It's fabulous folks! Don't miss it!"
"The performers made Shakespeare's language accessible and meaningful."
"WHAT AN EVENING! Thank you for bringing Shakespeare to Middletown."
"It's a brave, smart, energetic performance."
"Excellent show. High-caliber acting all around. The show held the interest of my nine year old!"
"I've seen many performances of Hamlet...I can say, handily, that Marcella Trowbridge pours every ounce of herself into Hamlet, and the result is nothing less than extraordinary. The performance was wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed it."
"This is a most thought-provoking production. Highly recommended."
