20 July, 2011 -
AMDA’s own Katrina Denney, former AMDA student and current Associate Director of Library Services & Chief Librarian at AMDA, is also managing director for the Fundamental Theater Project in NYC. Katrina is currently working with AMDA alum Sam Underwood who is starring as Hamlet, and fellow alum Jon McCormick, in the FTP’s new work 3D Hamlet: A Lost Generation. 3D Hamlet is an 80 minute distillation of the classical Hamlet text with an innovative overlay of multimedia and features a rotating cast of highly established and emerging talent. The show also guest stars Anthony Rapp (Rent –Broadway and Film), Scott Adsit ("30 rock") and features special on screen appearances from Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"), Michael Emerson ("Lost"), Richard Eastman and Meg Gibson. British actor Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral) will also take a turn as Polonius for one night in Edinburgh.
3D Hamlet was chosen to run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August with special previews in NYC during the week of July 21-24 at the Irish Arts Center at 553 West 51 St. Show times and rotating cast schedule.
Way to go Katrina, Sam & Jon!
