Producer's Note - "Hi! My name is Cyd and I am the Founder/Producing Artistic Director of The TINY Theater Company. My passion is theater and I am dedicated to reshaping the History of Black Representation in the Media. And what better place to begin: Shakespeare. I wanted to create a space we could all coexist. I want to highlight, celebrate, and restore our image. When I started writing this adaptation of HAMLET, I knew I wanted it to center around Black Brotherhood, Black Love, Black Rage. Alexis Woodard has taken the adaptation and turned it on its head, featuring a predominantly female cast!"
