David Esbjornson directs the Off-Broadway run, which plays through April 12. The production was originally scheduled for a March 15 start and a March 26 opening. Due to a last-minute cast change, the show delayed both dates, beginning previews March 19 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 next presents the return of its recent production of Othello for a second run at the Duke, April 15-24.
