In this edition of Blackfriars Backstage Pass, ASC Resident Troupe actors Susan Heyward (Ophelia), James Keegan (Ghost/Claudius), Greg Phelps (Laertes), and Ben Curns (Hamlet) join ASC Executive Director and Mary Baldwin College Shakespeare Professor Dr. Ralph Alan Cohen in a fun, thoughtful examination of the ASC's current production of the First Quarto Hamlet. Discussions center on the differences between the First Quarto, the earliest version of the play to be committed to print, and the more commonly performed Second Quarto and Folio versions.
