Danish prince killed above BeirutAudience members are still looking for their seats in the Emile Bustani auditorium when several onstage musicians stop their pre-performance tuning ritual and burst into song. Once the tune is done, actor Tom Lawrence welcomes the audience to the troupe's 156th performance of this evening's play. Before you can say "Hamlet, Prince of Denmark," the violins, accordion and percussion have melted into the background, and Lawrence and two colleagues begun the play's opening scene.
