Tickets are now available for Jack O’Brien’s Broadway production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The tragedy stars Ethan Hawke and Anne-Marie Duff as the central power-hungry couple. Macbeth begins at Lincoln Center Theater’s Vivian Beaumont Theatre on October 24, with opening night slated for November 21.
Macbeth follows the title Scottish general (Hawke), who receives a prophecy from three witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the throne. He soon becomes a tyrannical ruler and commits several murders to protect himself. The bloodbath takes Macbeth and Lady Macbeth (Duff) into realms of arrogance, madness and death.
Macbeth features sets by Scott Pask, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting by Japhy Weideman and original music and sound design by Mark Bennett.
