Hamlet (What Dreams May Come)

Asst. Director 

Movement and Fight Director


RIPT Theater Company at The Secret Theater , LIC

A 4-person , 90-minute Hamlet 

"The staging of the show is economic and clear, with smooth transitions for the performers to shift roles, or retreat to corners to observe the action, hoods drawn. Cat Yudain's fight choreography for the duel between Hamlet and Laertes is dynamic and thrilling, and, frankly, better staged than some I've seen on Broadway.”- Zelda Knapp, A Work Unfinishing 
“Ophelia’s drowning (spoiler alert!), enhanced by terrific sound (designed by Alan Waters) and lighting effects (Paul T. Kennedy’s handiwork), is a staging highlight, as is a sword-less sword fight between Hamlet and Laertes, complete with a few modern flourishes.” Mark Lord, Queens Chronicle
" openness and freedom in his [Winkelstein's] movements that explain his dexterity in the final fight scene (excellently choreographed by Cat Yudain)." Emily C.A. Snyder, Classical NYC

A Midsummer Night's Dream 

Movement Director

FoxWolf Productions and Masterfool 

A site-specific production played in Gowanus' Redwood Studios, BK  

"Hirsh’s Midsummer captures the hot-blooded delirium of young love, forgoing the magical luster often associated with Shakespeare’s forest of fairies for a simpler incarnation where the performers are at the forefront. In the spirit of the longest day of the year, the Redwood warehouse lights remain on throughout the evening, washing both performers and audience in a midsummer warmth that encourages a communion between the entire room." -Lee Kinney, Theater is easy
