Description

It's not easy when your dad is the most famous writer who ever lived. It's even harder when you never even knew him. Of course, it doesn't help matters that everyone thinks Hamnet's name is a typo -- but that might change now that his tale is being told around the world in a tour-de-force solo show. Now, after getting rave reviews in the U.K., "Hamnet" is coming to Emerson Paramount Center in Boston. In what's been called an "extraordinary performance" ("The Irish Times"), Ollie West (performing in the first two weeks) takes center stage as Shakespeare's only son, who died at 11 years old while his father was off working in London, before passing the titular role onto Aran Murphy for the final week of performances. As Hamnet's tale unfolds, playfully touching on everything from Google to Johnny Cash, it adds up to a poignant meditation on parents and children, regrets, and the human cost of greatness. Don't miss out on what's sure to be a popular show.
