I recently was asked to help spread the word on a very cool project that Erynn Brook  @erynnbrook is starting. She and her co-producer Kyle McDonald @mrkmcdonald will be starring in a live adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, called Hamlet Live. In addition to modernizing the storyline (set in a post-apocalyptic future in the year 2080) they’re also changing the way audiences will see it. Hamlet Live is bringing the show to you!

You can see the play LIVE at home and/or see it LIVE in Toronto. Tickets for the live-stream viewings are at a reduced price, plus you also get the chance to chat with others during the play and even take part. Hamlet Live is taking Social Media and Shakespeare and meshing into one theatrical experience!

In preparation of Hamlet Live (coming January 2012), Erynn, Kyle and the Hamlet Live team are also using social media as a way to build interest and get people excited! You can check out the Hamlet Live YouTube channel which has trailers, interviews and backstage footage. You can find them on Twitter @HamletLive2012 and chat with them on the Hamlet Live Facebook Page. I’ll be tweeting out updates on the show’s status, and any other Hamlet Live info that comes along the Twitterverse.

Thumbs up to Erynn Brook, Kyle McDonald and the Hamlet Live team for bringing this classic Shakespearean tale into a new medium.
