A Tony Award nominated (A Day in the Death of Joe Egg) and Emmy Award winning (Dressed to Kill) actor, Eddie Izzard’s boundary-pushing career includes critically acclaimed film, TV, and theatre performances: Race (Broadway), Lenny (West End), Stephen Frears’ Victoria & Abdul opposite Judi Dench, Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe, Peter Bogdanovich's The Cat’s Meow,  Bryan Fuller’s “Hannibal,” and FX’s “The Riches.”

Hamlet marks Eddie’s second solo theatrical production in New York, following last year’s sold-out run of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, which played to rave reviews at Greenwich House and in London’s West End.

 London’s Telegraph called Hamlet “Absorbing and intimate. An impressive sweeping performance. ★★★★”

NBC-TV'S Today Show saidTo be or not to be 23 different characters, that is the question. And Eddie Izzard’s Hamlet is the answer.”

 Theatermania.com said Izzard “makes each verse crackle.”

 New York Stage Review said, “Oh what a noble prince (plus everyone else) is Eddie Izzard.”

Hamlet is adapted by Mark Izzard and directed by Selina Cadell, with whom Eddie also collaborated on Great Expectations. The design team is Tom Piper (set), Tyler Elich (lighting), Tom Piper and Libby DaCosta (costume stylists), and Didi Hopkins (Movement Director).   It is produced by WestBeth Entertainment, Mick Perrin Worldwide, and John Gore.
