A new production of “Hamlet” has opened at the Wilma Theater, in center city, and director Blanka Zizka’s casting of the title role may be a historical first.
Many directors got their start on Broad Street before they hit Broadway.
The Wilma Theater web site on Wednesday evening had a tribute to Zizka, surprising many. Less than 60 years old, Jiri Zizka had passed away.
Fasten your seatbelts, theatregoers.
While this is an occasionally impressive production, it’s overworked and over-long.
