|Holloway as Hamlet|
It's directed by C. David Frankel, the artistic director of Tampa Rep. Jack Holloway, a fine actor and the artistic director of Hat Trick, plays Hamlet. Ned Averill-Snell, who is perhaps the finest actor in Tampa, is Claudius, and Steve Mountan, who is also among the Tampa Bay area's acting elite, is Polonius.
Every indication is that this will be something really special, and well worth the drive to Tampa for anyone who loves theater.
