“And though Hamlet resents the betrayals of Gertrude and Ophelia, (Helen) Merino oscillates with ease between rage and longing love, aided by dynamic chemistry with both Hamlet’s mother, played delicately by Kate Shaw, and his ex-girlfriend, played with great pathos by powerful newcomer Chelsea Duvall. A highlight is the nunnery scene, in which Hamlet furiously throws sobbing Ophelia to the ground and then kneels to embrace her in a regretful, tender caress.” – Jillian Owens, The Austin Chronicle on Austin Shakespeare’s Hamlet
