WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
When award-winning lip-sync maestro and intrepid drag fabulist Dickie Beau realized that he might never play Shakespeare's tragic prince of Denmark, he decided to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix tape. He would channel audio recordings of great historical performances of theater's most famous role to "re-member" the ghosts of Hamlet.
Humorous and haunting, Re-Member Me is part documentary theater, part 21st-century séance adventure through cultural landscapes, and a contemporary ghost story. In an ode to the impermanence of personhood and posterity, Beau chronicles the remarkable story behind the greatest Hamlet almost never seen.
