3/5: Voltimand and Cornelius are Dead Too

Posted By on Mon, Mar 1, 2010 at 3:16 PM

Oddy Festival impresario Matt Greenfield teams up with the Cleveland Shakespeare Festival this month for a production that riffs on a riff. In his 1966 play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Tom Stoppard takes two minor characters from Hamlet on an absurdist backstage battle of wits. Greenfield takes things a bit further, guiding a pair of even more obscure Hamlet characters on a journey to discover the significance of their miniscule roles. Voltimand and Cornelius Are Dead Too features two actors interacting with recordings of Hamlet. The play will be performed at 7:15 p.m. in the Brody-Nelson Room of the Cleveland Heights Library (2345 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts., 216.926.8641) as a benefit for the Cleveland Shakespeare Festival. (There’s another performance on March 19.) It’s free, but donations are encouraged. — Michael Gill
