Public Theater's Mobile Shakespeare Production of Hamlet Celebrates Opening
Patricia MacGregor directs the production.
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).
