Photo Flash: First Look at Chukwudi Iwuji in The Public's Mobile Unit HAMLET

The Public's Mobile Unit Production of HAMLET, featuring Olivier Award-winning actor Chukwudi Iwuji, directed by Patricia McGregor, just launched a free, three-week tour to the five boroughs. Running through September 17, HAMLET will follow with a sit-down run at The Public Theater, September 19 - October 9. The production will officially open on Thursday, September 22. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

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

The Public Theater's MOBILE UNIT presents a new, world-class production of Shakespeare's HAMLET to audiences and community venues across New York City. Olivier Award winner Chukwudi Iwuji plays the anguished prince of Denmark who is confronted at every turn with a poisonous power structure that's robbed him of his father and forever darkened his understanding of the world. Inspired by The Mobile Unit's unique approach to engaging diverse communities with the arts, Patricia McGregor directs this bold take on Shakespeare's immortal tale about family, deceit, and the explosive consequences of unchecked corruption.
