Fat Ham

To be or not to be like Hamlet, that is the question central to Fat Ham. James Ijames’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s renowned tragedy reimagines it as a modern-day comedy/drama, set at a Southern barbecue. Our Hamlet figure, Juicy, is asked by the ghost of his father to avenge his murder at his uncle’s hand (the barbecue happens to double as Juicy’s uncle and mother’s wedding reception). That’s where the Hamlet similarities end, though — whereas Hamlet thought it noble to kill his uncle in revenge, Juicy, a Black and queer college student interested in liberation, wonders whether violence is the only way.

Regular Fat Ham tickets are available on TodayTix, but you can also get $20 Rush tickets on the day of each performance, and you can enter the Lottery for a chance to win free tickets to the show’s Joseph Papp Free Performance on May 12.
