It’s been over 20 years since my husband, Bob, and I attended a wonderful performance of “Hamlet” at Los Altos’ Bus Barn Stage Company (now called Los Altos Stage Company, but still located in the old, corrugated-metal bus building). After the play, we realized what a gem the theater company is – polished acting, professional staging and innovative set design.
