The Jerome Stage

March 4-29, 2015

Following in the footsteps of other women who have played the melancholy prince, Jessica begins an insanely funny journey to find herself in the role of Hamlet. An acting coach, barflies, Shakespeare scholars, and text messages from Patrick Stewart help Jessica answer her most important question, “To be or not to be?”
