Jude Law Hamlet to Play Broadway in September

Applause Theatre Service has learned some exciting Broadway news today that the critically acclaimed Donmar Warehouse production of William Shakespeare's HAMLET with Jude Law in the title role, directed by Michael Grandage(Frost/Nixon), will come to Broadway this fall, following sold out runs in London's West End and a special engagement at Elsinore Castle in Denmark.

HAMLET will begin performances at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street) on Saturday, September 12 and open on Tuesday, October 6 for a strictly limited run of twelve weeks only. Law will be joined by the Donmar Theatre company of actors from London and Elsinore with further details to be announced later.

Award-winning actor Jude Law returns to Broadway for the first time since 1995 when he made his Tony Award-nominated debut in Jean Cocteau's Indiscretions (Les Parents Terribles). He is best known for his film roles in "The Talented Mr. Ripley"(My personal favorite!), "Road to Perdition," "Wilde," "Sherlock Holmes," "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus," "The Repossession Mambo," "Sleuth," "My Blueberry Nights," "The Holiday," "Closer," "Alfie," "The Aviator" and "Cold Mountain".

HAMLET is currently playing at Wyndham's Theatre in London's West End, where it completes its sold out run on August 22. It then travels to Kronberg Castle, Elsinore, for a sold out run from August 25-30, prior to Broadway.

In Shakespeare's definitive tragedy, the King of Denmark is dead. Consumed with grief, Prince Hamlet (Jude Law) determines to avenge his father's death with devastating consequences for his family and the kingdom.
