The play was streamlined down to ninety minutes and the show will take place throughout the mansion with the audience moving from room to room with the actors as the show progresses. Director Chris Nickerson says that in addition to Hamlet being a strong and dramatic play, the Phelps Mansion creates a set that money just can’t buy. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The Phelps Mansion Museum is presenting an immersive production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet this weekend. “You could not build a set as beautiful as the Phelps Mansion for any amount of money these days so the environment that you’re watching the play in is gorgeous,” he said. While the shows this weekend are sold out, Nickerson says the Phelps is considering adding another performance next weekend.
