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 “Hamlet” to Vogue Magazine

Oscar and Sam Gold are featured on the current Vogue magazine issue, talking about Hamlet, that started first performances at The Public Theater Off-Broadway last June 20.

On the interview, Oscar says he and Sam know each other for over a decade, and kept trying to work together in the past three years. “We’d just keep talking about it, keep dreaming about it, keep coming up with ideas for what kind of production we wanted to do,” Gold says.

What finally got Isaac to commit was a combination of burnout and an awareness f the passage of time. “After four or five years of going from one film to the next, it started to wear me down a little bit, and I felt that I should probably go back to the well, which was being onstage doing a play. I also knew that the window for being the right age to play Hamlet was getting smaller – you can only be so old and still get upset that your mom got remarried after your dad died without seeming pathetic. Plus, I needed to do it before my knees have out.

On the interview, Oscar also revealed that his mom has passed two months before his son is born.

“It’s a wild circle of life. My mother dies, and then two months later a son is born. It’s both cruel and beautiful. But that’s the nature of our existence – isn’t it?”
