Ham­let on the hill

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

A copy of the First Fo­lio — the orig­i­nal edi­tion of Wil­liam Shake­speare’s “com­plete plays,” pub­lished in 1623 — is on dis­play at the New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art through Feb. 28. Vis­i­tors will find it open to the fa­mous so­lil­o­quy “To be, or not to be,” from Act 3 of Ham­let. This week, St. John’s Col­lege will host a pilin­gup of the corpses in a full stag­ing of that mas­ter­work in the Great Hall of Peter­son Stu­dent Cen­ter (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca, 505-984- 6000). The pro­duc­tion is pre­sented jointly by St. John’s and the New Mex­ico Shake­speare Pro­ject, a newly founded ven­ture in­volv­ing pro­fes­sional ac­tors, di­rec­tors, and de­sign­ers. Martin An­drews por­trays the melan­choly Dane in this pro­duc­tion, which is di­rected by St. John’s se­nior Billy Trabaudo. Per­for­mances take place at 7:30 p.m. on Satur­day, Feb. 20, and at 2 p.m. on Sun­day, Feb. 21. Tick­ets ($20, cash only) can be pur­chased at the door and are not avail­able in ad­vance. — J.M.K.
