Don't miss Janet McTeer performing the role of Sarah Bernhardt at American Airlines Theater. Tickets are available for performances starting August 31st 2018 through November 11th 2018.

Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe, Tony & Olivier Award winner Janet McTeer returns to Broadway to star as Sarah Bernhardt in Pulitzer finalist Theresa Rebeck's new play Bernhardt / Hamlet.

Mark Twain wrote: “There are five kinds of actresses: bad actresses, fair actresses, good actresses, great actresses. And then there is Sarah Bernhardt.” In 1899, the international stage celebrity set out to tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet. Theresa Rebeck’s new play rollicks with high comedy and human drama, set against the lavish Shakespearean production that could make or break Bernhardt’s career. Janet McTeer, “one of the finest classical actresses of her generation” (The Telegraph), brings the legendary leading lady to life.
