First Look at Oscar Isaac and More in HAMLET at The Public Theater

The Public Theater presents HAMLET, featuring Golden Globe Award winner Oscar Isaac as the tormented Danish Prince. Directed by Tony Award winner Sam Gold, HAMLET is currently in previews and runs through Sunday, September 3 in the Anspacher Theater, with an official press opening on Thursday, July 13.

Oscar Isaac returns to The Public in this electrifyingly intimate new production of Shakespeare’s eternal drama. Isaac is the prince caught between thought and action, anger and anguish as his uncle assumes the throne left vacant by his murdered father. As the dead king calls to him from the grave, demanding to be avenged, Hamlet is forced to choose between bearing the oppressor’s wrong or taking arms against a sea of troubles. Tony Award winner Sam Gold directs theater’s most powerful tragedy about life and death, madness and conscience, and corruption-of the state and of the soul.

Oscar Isaac Named His Son After His Late Mother

A new interview with Oscar was published earlier today on NY Times. On the interview, he talked about caring for his mother in her final days. He said she would read from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet while his mother was in the hospital. She passed away this past February.

He also talked about his baby boy for the first time, and revealed he named him Eugene after his mother, Eugenia.

That’s in part because the play isn’t only for his mother. When he acts, he’s also thinking of his 2-month-old son, Eugene, named after her. The baby has Eugenia’s lips, he said, and her hands.

He brought Eugene to the first run-through (“I think some of the more philosophical and theological aspects of the play were above his head,” Mr. Gold joked), and it’s Eugene he thinks of when reciting the “to be” part of the “to be or not to be” soliloquy.

As Mr. Isaac explains, the speech is about dying — that’s the “not to be” part — but it’s also about choosing to go on living. And Mr. Isaac has better reasons to go on than Hamlet does.

“You have a child,” he said, “and you must — you must for their sake — you must say yes to life.”

The Public’s Hamlet, with Oscar Isaac, Now Running

Performances of Hamlet, directed by Tony winner Sam Gold, began June 20 at The Public Theater Off-Broadway. Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac stars in the title role, alongside Keegan-Michael Key as Horatio, Roberta Colindrez as Rosencrantz, Peter Friedman as Polonius, and Matthew Saldívar as Guildenstern.

The production will officially open July 13 in the Public’s Anspacher Theater. Completing the cast are Gayle Rankin as Ophelia, Ritchie Coster as Claudius, Charlayne Woodard as Gertrude, and Anatol Yusef as Laertes.

Performances are scheduled to play through September 3.

“Oscar Isaac starred in the first show I produced at the Delacorte, Two Gents in the summer of 2005. His Romeo two years later was more proof of his brilliance,” commented artistic director Oskar Eustis in an earlier press statement. “Sam Gold’s production of Fun Home was one of the most extraordinary directorial feats I’ve ever produced. The prospect of the two of them collaborating on what is arguably the greatest play ever written is joyous.”

Tickets and more information can be accessed by calling (212) 967-7555, visiting publictheater.org, or in person at the Taub Box Office at The Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street.

Oscar talks “The Last Jedi” and “Hamlet” on Stephen Colbert

Oscar stopped by ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ last Thursday (May 26), which was also the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. He talked about his admiration for the late Carrie Fisher and some of their time together on what would be her final Star Wars film.

“A large amount of the stuff I got to do was with Carrie, which was amazing,” Isaac began. “I remember the first day of shooting was a scene with Carrie … I remember it was a scene where I come up and talk with her, and she is very upset with me and slaps me. And Rian Johnson, the director, kept doing it over and over. I think it ended up being 27 takes of Carrie just leaning in (mimics hard slapping).”

Isaac also had a funny anecdote about how he tired to initially keep his Force Awakens script after wrap, which he was supposed to give back, and finally did when Disney mentioned the lawyers were looking for it.
