The new production of Shakespeare’s tragedy will begin performances at Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre on the 29th March 2022.
It has been announced that a new production of Macbeth will be heading to Broadway next year, with Daniel Craig taking on the title role and Ruth Negga making her Broadway debut as Lady Macbeth. Additional casting will be announced soon.
The production is set to be directed by Tony Award winner Tony Gold (A Doll’s House, Part 2; Fun Home) and will be beginning performances at the Lyceum Theatre on the 29th March 2022, with an official opening on the 28th April.
This new production of Macbeth is being produced by Barbara Broccoli who said: “Daniel is not only a great film actor but a magnificent theatre actor as well. I am thrilled that he will be supporting the return of Broadway playing this iconic role with the exquisitely talented Ruth Negga making her Broadway debut and under the expert direction of Sam Gold.”
A tale of malice, matrimony and murder, Macbeth tells the story of one couple’s obsession with power—and their guilt after doing the unthinkable. For 15 weeks only, this thrilling new production will capture the passion and ferocity of Shakespeare’s most haunting text like never before.
