Photo Flash: MOBILE UNIT's HAMLET Celebrates Opening Night at The Public Theater

The Public Theater presents MOBILE UNIT'S HAMLET, directed by Patricia McGregor. The sit-down run of HAMLET follows a free three-week tour to the five boroughs bringing Shakespeare to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts. The Shakespeare classic will run in The Public Theater's Shiva Theater through Sunday, October 9. The show celebrated its official press opening last night, September 22, and BroadwayWorld has photos from the festivities 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).

Now in its seventh year, 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.

HAMLET features scenic design by Katherine Akiko Day, costume design by Montana Levi Blanco, music composition by Imani Uzuri, movement direction by Paloma McGregor, and fight direction by Lisa Kopitsky.
