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 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.
