• Produced by Arielle Tepper Madover

A Sensational Actor. An Acclaimed Performance. A Strictly Limited Engagement.

The King of Denmark is dead. Consumed with grief, Prince Hamlet devotes himself to avenging his father’s death with devastating consequences for his family and the Kingdom. Shakespeare’s tragedy of betrayal and revenge is considered among the greatest plays in the English language. Hamlet concluded its record-breaking Broadway run on December 6, 2009. Thank you to our amazing audiences.

As part of the Donmar's & Mrs. Madovers commitment to greater accessibility more than 100 tickets priced at $25 were made available at every performance.
