Dueling Critics: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead! It's a statement. But it's also a play, one that launched writer Tom Stoppard to fame and fortune. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern made their first appearance in Shakespeare's Hamlet. But thanks to Stoppard's pen and imagination, we now see the action from their perspective. The play is getting a fresh treatment at Writers' Theatre. Eight Forty-Eights's dueling critics, Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman, review the latest version.
