David Esbjornson directs the Off-Broadway run, which is scheduled to officially open March 26 at The Duke on 42nd Street. The production will play through April 12. (Previews were delayed from the originally scheduled start March 15 due to a cast change.) Camargo, seen in Broadway's recent All My Sons revival, tackles the title role opposite Alvin Epstein (as Polonius), Casey Biggs (Claudius), Alyssa Bresnahan (Gertrude), Graham Hamilton (Laertes) and Jennifer Ikeda (Ophelia). (Biggs replaced the previously announced Patrick Page, who withdrew from the production due to illness.)

The company also includes Scott Drummond (Bernardo), Jonathan Fried (The Ghost), Sean Haberle (Marcellus), Tom Hammond (Horatio), John Christopher Jones (Gravedigger), Craig Pattison (Rosencrantz), Ryan Quinn (The Player Queen and Osiric), Robert Stattel (The Player King) and Richard Topol (Guildenstern).

The design team for Hamlet includes Antje Ellermann (sets), Beth Clancy (costumes), Marcus Doshi (lights), Sven Ortel (projections) and Jane Shaw (music and sound). Cicely Berry and Andrew Wade provide voice work.

TFANA recently announced its production of Othello will return for a second run at the Duke, April 15-24.
