Ethan Hawke (Tony nomination in 2007 for The Coast of Utopia) will star in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Joining him as Lady Macbeth will be British actress Anne-Marie Duff. Duff will be making her Broadway debut. Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s most powerful tragedies as it reveals the meteoric rise and fall of a Scottish king and queen who will stop at nothing to get and retain power.
Macbeth is a worthy general who finds himself on the verge of becoming all-powerful. His ambition is cultivated by three witches who help inspire him to take and keep the Scottish crown at any price. Co-conspirator Lady Macbeth helps keep her husband focused on the prize of ultimate power. Macbeth is a bloody and powerful tragedy about ambition, greed, conscience and morality.
