Smart Bets: Hamlet, steam-punk style

You know Shakespeare's Hamlet, right? At least more or less. But what about Hamlet reimagined through the lens of Victorian-era steampunk? "Themes of indecision, revenge and retribution, deception, ambition, loyalty and fate make Hamlet timeless," says press for the show, produced by the A-B Tech Drama Club, and staring A-B Tech alumna Hayley Karbowski as the title character. Interiors of the Biltmore House will be projected as scenery, "transporting the audience from room to room of Elsinore Castle." Held at A-B Tech's Simpson Hall. Wednesdays-Saturdays, April 24-May 4 at 7:30 p.m. $5/$10/$15. Photo by Frank J. Bott
