Review: Dashiell Hamlet

My review of City Lit's Dashiell Hamlet has been posted here.

Here's a teaser:

Updates and adaptations of classic stories are risky endeavors; the new version needs to compete with the success of the old and add something that isn't in the original. Many such plays leave the audience wondering why anybody bothered. Happily, this is not the case with "Dashiell Hamlet" at City Lit Theatre, which finds amusement and unexpected emotional resonance in updating the story of "Hamlet" to the era of film noir.
