Hamlet Starring Oscar Isaac at the Public Theater

Anspacher Theater at The Public Theater

https://publictheater.org/Public-Theater-Season/Hamlet/

425 Lafayette Street

Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Romeo and Juliet) returns to The Public in this electrifyingly intimate new production of Shakespeare’s eternal drama. Isaac is the Prince caught between thought and action, anger and anguish, as his uncle assumes the throne left vacant by his murdered father. As the dead King calls to him from the grave, demanding to be avenged, Hamlet is forced to choose between bearing the oppressor’s wrong or taking arms against a sea of troubles.

Tony Award winner Sam Gold (Fun Home, Othello) directs theater’s most powerful tragedy about life and death, madness and conscience, and corruption—of the state and of the soul.
