The Tony nominee will offer the solo version of Hamlet January 25-March 3, 2024, at Off-Broadway's Greenwich House Theater. Opening night is February 11.
The six-week engagement will be directed by Selena Cadell. Mark Izzard penned the adaptation of the Shakespeare classic. The two also worked with Eddie Izzard on Great Expectations.
In a statement the actor and comic, who will be portraying men, women, ghosts, scholars, tyrants, courtiers, lovers, fools, and poets, says, “I have always gravitated towards playing complex and challenging characters, and Hamlet is the ultimate. This is a production for everyone, a timeless drama with an accidental hero. Selina, Mark, and I want audiences to see and hear an accessible, touching, scary and dramatic Hamlet.”
The upcoming production will also have set design by Tom Piper, lighting by Tyler Elich, costume styling by Tom Piper and Libby DaCosta, and movement direction by Didi Hopkins.
A Tony nominee for her performance in A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, Izzard was also seen on Broadway in Race. Her London stage credits include The Cryptogram, Edward II, 900 Oneonta, Joe Egg, and Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations.
