Unusual Casting Shows the Universality of Shakespeare


The Binghamton University Theatre Department is presenting Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’. In this case, the Prince of Denmark is portrayed by a woman, Danielle Nigro, and we hear from her about how Hamlet’s struggles transcend gender.  We also meet fight director Jamie Cheatham, an alumnus of Binghamton University, who now specializes in stage combat.
