Shakespeare’s Hamlet is an exceedingly ambitious choice of play to put on, but Sacramento Theatre Company’s production is deserving of the highest praise, as it avoids each pitfall expertly and is an altogether excellent show. Ian Hopps’ standout performance as Hamlet is particularly noteworthy. O.R.
