Following sold-out runs at London’s Almeida Theatre and 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, known for his intelligent and accessible productions and his ability to bring fresh, new perspectives to old texts and 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 powerful staging, Icke’s Hamlet is vividly brought to the stage by the multi-award-winning creative team behind the director’s celebrated productions of The Doctor and Oresteia. Hamlet will play in repertory with Aeschylus’ Oresteia, adapted by Robert Icke. Hamlet marks Icke’s return to the Armory after the sold-out run of Enemy of the People last summer.
