Chukwudi Iwuji Stars in the Public Theater's Touring Hamlet
Patricia McGregor directs Shakespeare's drama.
Now in its seventh year, the Mobile Unit's free fall tour (through September 17) will bring 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.
Following the free tour, McGregor's production of Hamlet will have a sitdown run at the Public Theater from September 19-October 9 with an official press opening on September 22.
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).
