Fat Ham on Broadway Tickets

Todd Haimes Theatre

James Ijames’ Pulitzer Prize-winning modern take on Hamlet opens on Broadway after a sold-out season at The Public Theater.

A deliciously funny riff on Hamlet

Fresh from a sold out season at The Public Theater, exciting comic-drama Fat Ham at the American Airlines Theatre is an uproarious and moving riff on one of the most famous plays of all time.

Juicy is a queer, Southern college student with a few heavy identity questions hanging over him. Things are about to get even more complicated when the ghost of his father turns up in the backyard, ordering Juicy to get revenge on his backstabbing uncle. Forget to be or not to be: Juicy isn’t sure about revenge and would rather pursue his own happiness and liberation.

As the family cookout gets underway, Fat Ham explores love, loss and joy in a sensitive and funny story inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

After playwright James Ijames won the 2022 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Fat Ham premiered Off-Broadway, directed by Saheem Ali (Nollywood Dreams). The Fat Ham Broadway cast includes original cast member Marcel Spears as Juicy.

Critics and audiences couldn’t stop shouting about this sensational play! Catch Juicy’s radical, joyful story for yourselves with Fat Ham tickets at the American Airlines Theatre.

The show was very funny, and extra funny if you’re familiar enough with Hamlet to get the jokes. I definitely walked out of the theatre feeling good.
