Why See Eddie Izzard: Hamlet?

PlaysOff Broadway ShowsLegends LiveClassic

An ensemble? No, it's Eddie Izzard playing 23 Shakespeare characters! Izzard's one-of-a-kind adaptation of Hamlet is heading on an epic limited off-Broadway tour, beginning at Greenwich House Theatre on January 25! Izzard joins forces with actress and director Selina Cadell, known for Wild Child (2008), Match Point (2005), and Doc Martin (2004).

What is Hamlet about?

The iconic Shakespearean tragedy follows Hamlet of Denmark, a young prince who is left reeling from the sudden death of his father, King Hamlet. One fateful night, the ghost of King Hamlet appears to his son in a ghostly form, delivering an ominous secret surrounding the true events of his death, and to the surprise of young Hamlet, the killer lives closer than he could have ever expected...

Consumed by grief, anger, and a desire for revenge, Hamlet must now feign madness to investigate the truth behind his father's death and avenge his legacy.

About Eddie Izzard's Hamlet 

Adapted by Mark Izzard, this rendition promises to be a fantastic interpretation of the Shakespearean classic! The production reunites the Izzards and Director Selina Cadell, following their partnership on the sold-out run of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations last year.

"I have always been drawn to portraying complex and challenging characters, and Hamlet is the ultimate," Izzard said about the show.
