Down the Rabbit Hole is proud to present:
Breakneck Hamlet is “recklessly sliced” from Shakespeare’s original, cutting what is usually a four-hour play down to a single hour with a single actor. Tim Mooney’s “breakneck performance” reveals Hamlet as a thrilling chameleon, with an immense intellectual capacity and a hilarious, wicked sense of humor. Rather than the usual melancholy Dane, Mooney’s Hamlet fights like hell throughout, with barely a second-long pause through the entire performance.
Reviewers have said:
“[Mooney] gives prominence to the recurring themes so much so that it’s as if they are lit up in neon lights… a whirlwind of wonderful. Hold on to your seats and watch a master at his work.” Lee Hartman, KCMetropolis.org
“Brilliant… [Mooney] knows his Shakespeare forwards, backwards and out-of-context… He seamlessly throws in asides, explanations and famous lines as he whirls to the play’s conclusion.” Jodie Jacobs, Examiner.com
“Astonishing… a concise cliff-hanger… Gestures are precise, elaborate and underlined by stark changes in vocal tone… an assured and lively adaptation.” Jay Harvey
