The Prince of Denmark is back—and he’s brought his iPhone. This year’s Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival (to Sep. 14) presents Hamlet (pictured), featuring the Bard’s original dialogue in a contemporary setting, plus three other plays. Go early for additional insights into the performances with “in a nutshell” previews at no extra charge (excludes weekday matinees). Revenge, betrayal and murder set against the picturesque backdrop of Vanier Park—we Vancouverites definitely prefer our Shakespeare seaside.
