The playwright, a frequent contributor of humor columns to “The New Yorker” magazine, puts […]

2nd Story’s ‘I Hate Hamlet’ a sweet treat

"I Hate Hamlet" sure is a lot of fun, perhaps the best offering of the summer so far.

by Channing Gray, Providence Journal

As 2nd Story Theatre’s Ed Shea says, “I Hate Hamlet,” the theater’s latest offering, is a meringue, not a meat pie. And in this case it’s a very sweet meringue, a true confection starting with a clever story and capped off with some wonderful acting from the likes of John Michael Richardson as the lovable […]
