Hamleting after all.

Rob signed up for the virtual ticket line last night and, much to our surprise, won tickets to the show. We’re going after all.

Just in case you don’t know about the virtual line:

While the majority of Free tickets for Shakespeare in the Park are distributed via the Free line at the Delacorte Theater, a limited number of tickets will be available the day of each performance online. Specific locations for senior and handicapped accessible seats are not available through the virtual ticket line.

Register anytime at PUBLICTHEATER.ORG and then log on between midnight and 1PM on the day of the performance you want to see to submit a request for up to two tickets. You must log-on again between 1PM-6PM to see if you have been selected to receive a pair of tickets. People are chosen at random, not in the order requests are received.

Did you know you can support Mary Robinette on Patreon!

    I am so delighted that the universe threw you that bone on what would have otherwise been a rather dreadful day. Who is in this production?

    Waterston, Braugher, and Ambrose . . . nifty lineup. I fell under Waterston’s spell way back in 1975 or so when PBS aired the video of his Benedick in the Joseph Papp/A.J. Antoon production of “Much Ado About Nothing,” which I only this spring obtained on DVD.

    I miss the poster of the raging Waterston in the title role of “Hamlet” that used to hang way up near the ceiling of Kornblatt’s, the Jewish deli on NW 23rd here in Portland. Does anyone know whether Waterston’s Hamlet was ever videotaped and made available anywhere?
