Why See To Be Or Not To Be?
The place: Poland during the Nazi occupation. And when the going gets tough for members of a theatrical troupe, they get going (unlike Hamlet). Based on the 1942 film directed by Ernst Lubitsch.
At the Polski Theatre in 1939 Warsaw, Joseph and Maria Tura are about to open yet another smash with their theatrical troupe. As the German invasion gets underway, the theatre is closed by censors, forcing the troupe to face desperate times. But when a handsome young bomber pilot enlists their help to catch a spy, what is a group of actors to do? This black comedy is a commentary on the World War II era and a tribute to the timeless joys of the theatre.
This hilarious black comedy is an ingenious commentary on the World War II era and an inspired tribute to the timeless joys of the theatre. Directing is Casey Nicholaw, the three-time Tony®-nominated director of The Drowsy Chaperone and choreographer of Spamalot.
