Bernhardt/Hamlet follows international stage celebrity Sarah Bernhardt as she sets out to conquer her most ambitious role. As the most famous actress of her time, the 1899 part in Hamlet could have destroyed her career. Despite the danger, Sarah Bernhardt donned men’s clothing and took on the biggest challenge of her time as the first woman ever to play Hamlet. Broadway’s Bernhardt/Hamlet explores that leap of faith and Sarah Bernhardt’s triumph over rigid 19th Century gender roles expertly with an all-star cast in this Teresa Rebeck play.
Screen and stage powerhouse Janet McTeer heads up the cast at the launch of Bernhardt/Hamlet, taking on the role of Sarah Bernhardt. A prolific actress, Janet McTeer has made appearances in television, film, and on stage throughout her decades-long career. A winner of the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play, the Olivier Award for Best Actress, and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Play (A Doll’s House, 1996-1997), Janet McTeer also found enormous success starring in the 1999 film Tumbleweeds, which earned her a Golden Globe Award and a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress. Her more recent work includes Maleficent in 2014, The Divergent Series from 2015-2016, and Me Before You in 2016. In addition to all her accolades, Janet McTeer was made an OBE (Order of the British Empire) in the 2008 Queen’s Birthday Honours, which recognizes and rewards good works.
Dylan Baker opened the show with his portrayal of Constant Coquelin. Like the show’s leading lady, Dylan Baker has many screen and stage credits to his name. He has appeared in numerous films, including Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, Secretariat, Road to Perdition, and The Cell. His portrayal of J. Edgar Hoover in the movie Selma earned him several award nominations, but it was his work on the 1998 film, Happiness, that really set him apart, winning him a Gotham Award for Best Breakthrough Performance as well as several other nominations. He has also been recognized for his television work, winning a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series three times (2010, 2012, and 2014), and a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for his work on Damages (2011).
Bernhardt/Hamlet’s Broadway debut date at the American Airlines Theater was August 31, 2018. The show’s official launch date is September 29, 2018.
Bernhardt/Hamlet is suitable for all ages, but parents should note that children under 4 are not allowed in the theater, and children under 10 may not understand the material well enough to hold their attention throughout.
Like most Broadway shows, Bernhardt/Hamlet runs about 2 hours with one intermission. As with any live show, it could run slightly shorter or slightly longer.
