Actors for “Getting Even with Shakespeare” – FringeNYC
WHO: "Getting Even with Shakespeare" – FringeNYC
Hamlet: male, 20s-30s, philosopher and understated leader of the group, stable, perceptive, a guy someone would want to be his best man
Ophelia 482 (a.k.a Jill Shanley): female, 20s, a 22-year-old aspiring actress, initally comes across as a bit clueless (perhaps due to self-absorption), but proves herself to be incredibly supportive, tenacious, and smart
Juliet: female, late-teens-20s, vicious prep school slut for whom centuries of bitterness and frustration have now been turned outward, manifesting in social climbing, recreational drug use and sex, and hurling abuses at Romeo
Matt: male, 20s-30s, the hero, a likeable guy, very competent professional with a supressed artist's soul, but the only question is whether he is a competent artist.
