Jude Law

Jude Law is about to vacillate – in front of everybody.

The actor (and PEOPLE's 2004 Sexiest Man Alive), who's currently starring in a Donmar Warehouse production of Shakespeare's Hamlet, will bring the show to Broadway in September, The New York Times reports. His Hamlet will play a 12-week run at the Broadhurst Theater, with previews beginning Sept. 12, says the paper.

Reviews of Law's performance have been particularly positive. "[He] joins the modern pantheon of spellbinding sweet princes with a performance of rare vulnerability and emotional openness," Charles Spencer wrote in the Telegraph. Times of London critic Benedict Nightingale called the actor "robust and tough."

Law, 36, previously appeared on Broadway – nude – in the 1995 play Indiscretions alongside Kathleen Turner and Cynthia Nixon. Tickets go on sale July 18.
