This weekend, the Jesuit Masque performed "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," with four shows over three days (March 30-April 1).
The Multi-Purpose Room at Jesuit High School was packed Friday and Saturday night to see the Masque's interpretation of Tom Stoppard's 1966 play, which expands upon the exploits of two minor characters from William Shakespeare's "Hamlet," courtiers Rosencrantz and Guilderstern. J.P. Menendez '19 and George Morgan '18 starred as the title characters, and the performance received much acclaim.
