The Public Theater celebrated the opening night of its Mobile Unit production of Shakespeare's Hamlet, directed by Patricia McGregor, on September 22.

Now in its seventh year, the Mobile Unit's free fall tour brought Shakespeare to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts by visiting correctional facilities, homeless shelters, social service organizations, and other community venues. Hamlet's sitdown run at the Public Theater continues through October 9.

The cast includes Chukwudi Iwuji in the title role, as well as Orlagh Cassidy (Gertrude), Christian DeMarais (Laertes), Christopher Ryan Grant (Player King/Musician), Kristolyn Lloyd (Ophelia), Jeffrey Omura (Horatio), Daniel Pearce (Polonius/Gravedigger), Timothy Stickney (Claudius/Ghost), and Natalie Woolams-Torres (Rosencrantz).

The Hamlet cast and Public Theater team toast their opening night.
