Jude Law Coming To Broadway

Jude Law Coming To Broadway

Jude Law will bring Donmar Warehouse production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet to Broadway for a 12-week engagement at the Broadhurst Theater in New York City beginning September 12.

The 36-year-old actor returns to the New York stage for the first time since 1995 when he made his Tony Award-nominated debut in Jean Cocteau‘s Indiscretions.

The play will finish its sold out run in London on August 22 and then head to Elsinore Castle in Denmark, where the play is set. Following that short run, the play moves to New York where previews begin September 12 and officially opens on October 6.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public July 18.

    a personal victory for jude law. he’s giving the performance of the century in london and broadway took notice. so many comments about jude law refer to his looks his sexiness his hairline. let’s not forget….jude is a tremendous actor. the critics and audiences are going wild in london and broadway will do the same.

  • Sandy

    Jude, You’ve done it babe, success of the kind you dreamt about all of your life. HOw wonderful and marvelous this is. We feel like we picked a winner and we certainly did. How does it feel – when the reviews come in you will know for sure. I’m sure the American critics
    will be every bit as kind as most of the Britiish critics were. What a
    triumph- forget the silly remarks about your hair or your personal life which was nobody’s business but yours and immerse yourself in the
    glow of love and admiration for your talents and what you have acheived. You are at the pinnacle of your career, up to now. Enjoy the
    approbation and the glory of it and then turn around look back and reach even higher. The world is your oyster! Sent with undying love.

    I happy for all who wasn t able to see Hamlet in London that can go to NY. I also se happy that Jude is doing so great cause he deserve it so much.

  • purpleworm

    Good for him. I hope he’s enjoying every bit of this long-deserved success & recognition. They say he loves NYC so I bet he’s excited about living there for a while – even tho’ he’ll be without his kids except for occasional visits. Oh, I envy all you NYorkers who will see him out & about.

  • ljoyce

    Just saw the matinee of Hamlet at the Donmar today and it was fantastic. Everything from the stage to all of the supporting cast. Jude Law got a well deserved standing ovation and he looked amazing and really seemed to love the audience reaction during the curtain call.

    I urge anyone that has an opportunity to check him out in NYC to go, it’s is well worth it!

  • yippieeeeee

    are there still tickets available if one goes to the ticket both early in the morning or do you have to be there reaallllllyyy early.? I am ging to be in London in August and thought I just might catch a show.

  • Sara

    Jude, you rock, let’s roll in Broadway lol… Cause I know that you will !!
    Love You, Heart ♥

  • Daphne

    @#16: I saw it at the Donmar too. Fantastic! Jude was the best thing about it. There seems to be a hole in the stage when he’s not there. I am making plans (fingers crossed) to go again when it comes to NYC.

    @#17: The theatre holds back about 30 tickets to go on sale every day for that day’s performance. I heard you have to get in line for hours to get them. The box office opens at 10am, I think. You can also get returns around 5pm but I heard the line up is really long. The morning line up seems like the better bet. If you go on a weekday, it’s probably easier than on a weekend. Good luck!

  • dolorescraeg

    natalie, how lovely of you to post this. i have a ticket alrteady….we know it will be gone in a second. the performances are sold out.

  • Pole

    I am so happy for him that he’s FINALLY getting recognition for his acting abilities *yeah* He certainly deserves it IMO and I hope this will mean more focus in the press on his work instead of his private life. I cannot wait to see Hamlet *does happy dance*

  • jill
