Eric Bjorklund has a strange fantasy.
It begins with a production of William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” builds with Lee Blessing’s “Fortinbras,” continues its radical ascent with Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,” reaches a high pitch with the second half of The Reduced Shakespeare Company’s “The Complete Wrks of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged)” and caps off with Paul Rudnick’s “I Hate Hamlet.”
Each play in Bjorklund’s fantasy theatre season is some variation of “Hamlet” – excepting “Hamlet” itself, of course – and the fact that Bjorklund thinks the lineup is a great idea, well, that is some variation of what he calls “my Shakespeare itch.”
This fall, the longtime Los Alamos Little Theatre actor and director will stage one of his favorites, and poor Ophelia won’t even have to die – though somebody certainly will.
It’s time for “Macbeth.”
“I’ve wanted to do this for a very, long time,” Bjorklund said.
