Helmed by by STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn, Shakespeare’s most celebrated tragedy will run January 16–February 25, 2018, at Sidney Harman Hall.

Urie, who will play the tortured Danish prince, will be joined by Oyin Oladejo (Star Trek: Discovery) as Ophelia, Robert Joy (King Charles III) as Polonius, Alan Cox (Translations on Broadway) as Claudius, Federico Rodriguez as Horatio, Madeleine Potter (An Ideal Husband on Broadway) as Gertrude, and STC Affiliated Artist Keith Baxter as the Ghost.

“I have been eager to explore this masterpiece with Michael Urie as Hamlet,” said Kahn in a statement, “and now that we have assembled such a deeply talented cast to fill the world around him, I know we are going to see some extraordinary performances. I am happy to welcome back some STC veterans and other gifted artists who will make their debut on our main stage.

The critically acclaimed Second Stage Theater revival of Harvey Fierstein's Torch Song is currently scheduled to run through December 9 at Off-Broadway's Tony Kiser Theater.
