David Carl's Celebrity One Man Hamlet
NY Fringe Outstanding Solo Performance Award-winner David Carl portrays Gary Busey in this offbeat, hilarious one-man show. Having triumphed in Celebrity Big Brother, survived Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, and taken on Donald Trump and Meatloaf, Keanu Reeves’ favorite costar now undertakes his biggest challenge yet: performing all the parts in Hamlet with outrageous songs and homemade puppets. Carl channels the ultimate Hamlet-ized Busey in what Georgetown Voice has deemed “the best impersonation of Gary Busey the world will ever know.” A hit among critics, Shakespeare scholars and fans of Busey alike, don’t miss out on the tragically epic madness.
