with the arrival onstage of the veteran Jeremiah Kissel as the ghost of Hamlet's father, the focus locks in on terror and awe. Aided by costume designer Clint Ramos' stunning, larger-than-life, puppet-style, blood-drenched field officer's uniform, and achieving a visceral vocal intensity I have never before heard from him, Kissel cranks up the emotional volume to the level the production will sustain throughout. Here, and in his later cameos as the Player King and the First Gravedigger, Kissel to my mind walks away with the acting prize.
