“Robert Icke is one of the most important forces in today’s theatre…Every moment of the text rings with significance.”

The Guardian (UK)

“Robert Icke’s production of Hamlet remains extraordinarily,
heartbreakingly beautiful.”

Time Out (London)

Following sold-out runs at London’s Almeida Theatre and in London’s West End, award-winning director Robert Icke brings his acclaimed production of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet to Park Avenue Armory, reimagined for the majestic Wade Thompson Drill Hall. Icke’s extraordinary skill at pulling Shakespearean language into the present makes this Hamlet a revelation not to be missed. The Evening Standard describes Icke’s interpretations of classic plays as “unapologetically audacious, yet they have a rigorous logic. Here the tone is conversational rather than declamatory.” With visceral, fast-paced, and powerful staging and the cross-cutting effects of movies and TV, Icke’s Hamlet is vividly brought to the stage by the critically acclaimed and multi-award winning creative team behind the director’s productions of 1984 and Oresteia.

From June through mid-August, the Armory’s Wade Thompson Drill Hall will house Robert Icke‘s modern interpretations of William Shakespeare‘s Hamlet and Aeschylus‘s Oresteia, placing these two ambitious works in repertory.
