Rosenkrantz And Guildenstern Aren't Dead Yet

Another show from the St. Louis Theatre Crawl, this one a brief scene from Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. I remember seeing this on Broadway shortly after I finished high school. Two of Shakespeare's most minor characters are left adrift on the seas of absurdity. In Hamlet, they eventually reach their demise. 

The Theatre Crawl uses every possible venue in the Grand Centre arts district. This was performed in a candy store. I wonder if the gaudy mannequin in the corner is meant to represent Queen Gertrude.
