White Plains does the melancholy Dane

Never let it be said that the city of White Plains lacks cultural ambition. This year’s “Shakespeare in the Park” production, presented in conjunction with ArtsWestchester on Thursday, July 12, is nothing less than the Bard’s greatest and most complex but perhaps also most universal play, “Hamlet.” It’s from the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, which staged the work in 2011 to great success.

This being a family-friendly production, the play, which generally clocks in at more than four hours, runs only half that time, from 7 to 9 p.m. in Turnure Park on Lake Street.  (The rain site is the Eastview Middle School, 350 Main St.)

Still, “Hamlet” is “Hamlet” – pretty impressive for a night under the stars.
