Classical Theatre Company Artistic Director John Johnston is in a good mood. "We are thrilled to be bringing internationally renowned artist Guy Roberts to our stage this season for our production of Hamlet," he says in press materials. (The tag line for the show is "One man. Eighteen characters. Ninety minutes.") Roberts, who is artistic director of the Prague Shakespeare Festival, will star in the one-man show as well as co-direct with Johnston (which means there are more directors for this show than there are actors, every director's dream). 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with an additional performance on Monday, October 12. Through October 18. HITS Theatre, 311 West 18th Street. For information, call 713-963-9665 or visit www.classicaltheatre.org. $7 to $15.
Thursdays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m.; Mon., Oct. 12, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 8. Continues through Oct. 18, 2009
