After a brief interlude, Muse of Fire will return to Ingraham Park with free presentations of Hamlet, perhaps Shakespeare’s best known play. Artistic Director Jemma Alix Levy helms the production, giving an intimate look at this most human of Shakespeare’s characters, and Producing Artistic Associate Alex Fthenakis stars as the conflicted Prince of Denmark.

Outdoor performances are Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. July 25 – Aug. 30 in Ingraham Park, behind the Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave. There will be no outdoor shows Aug. 22 and 23, but there will be indoor performances at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 21, 22, 28, and 29, at Evanston Public Library, 1703 Orrington Ave.

The production will run approximately 2 1/2 hours, plus an intermission.  Indoor performances will require the audience to move around the building but will be entirely wheelchair accessible.
