Acknowledgments: First and foremost, thank you, [personal profile] elrhiarhodan, for bidding on me and for making such a generous donation to Sweet Charity (and then for being so flexible on the prompt!). I hope you like your fic! This story is by far the longest continuous narrative that I’ve ever written – I know it’s far from perfect, but I hope you enjoy it. ♥ I also owe huge thanks to all the folks at fic_finishing – without your support, I never would have gotten this finished! [personal profile] ashcat and [personal profile] bientot were amazing first readers, your cheerleading kept me motivated. (Special thanks to [personal profile] bientot for Satchmo’s name!) And last but not least, thank you, [personal profile] afiawri, for the insightful betaing! The many remaining mistakes are all mine.

Notes: This entire fic is full of historical inaccuracies. Some, like increasing the length of the rehearsal process, I made intentionally - most are just because I didn't have the time to do more research into the minutiae of the time period. Working from this article, it doesn't seem that out of the question that people of color would be employed at a place like The Globe, or that June couldn't have been the landlady for property that she inherited from her husband (working from this website). So Jones, Cruz, and June are in more-or-less their canonical roles.

Disclaimer: Obviously, the quotes from the play (and the title) are Shakespeare's, just as the show belongs to Eastin and USA. You don’t have to be familiar with Hamlet to enjoy this fic, but if you want to refresh your memory, the full text can be found here.

Warnings: Rampant historical inaccuracy.

Summary: Peter never thought he’d see Neal Caffrey again after his fall from grace and departure from the stage. But when The Globe needs a new lead actress, Neal may be his only choice.

I wonder i've read this whole story and i can't stop thinking about Stage Beauty its a movie basically with the same plot kinda. And i can't stop imaging neal as the main male character. If you haven't seen it its really good and is about how woman were legalized to play female roles and eventually that only woman could play female roles and how one man who was a famous female character actor fell and how he learned to play male parts. But i digress and went off on a tangent. Awesome Fic!
