Actions That a Man Might Play: Hamlet on Stage in 1599–1601
Hamlet's original staging in the Globe Theatre, on the south bank of the Thames River, commanded the talents of the Lord Chamberlain's Men, with Richard Burbage, Augustine Phillips, Will Kempe, and Shakespeare himself as writer and as actor who may have played the Ghost. Production used minimal scene effects and rapid stage movement to achieve a series of astonishing displays.
