MACBETH on Broadway, starring Alan Cumming

Direct from acclaimed, sold-out engagements at the National Theatre of Scotland and the Lincoln Center Festival, Tony and Olivier Award winner ("Cabaret") and two-time Emmy nominee ("The Good Wife") Alan Cumming returns to Broadway this spring in a thrilling interpretation of Shakespeare's darkest and most powerful tragedy, MACBETH.

Produced by Ken Davenport, the National Theatre of Scotland's MACBETHwill play a strictly limited 73-performance engagement at Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street).

A tour-de-force performance directed by Tony Award winner John Tiffany ("Once") and Andrew Goldberg ("The Bomb-itty of Errors"), this MACBETH is set in a clinical room deep within a dark psychiatric unit. Cumming is the lone patient, reliving the infamous story and inhabiting each role himself.

Closed circuit television cameras watch the patient's every move as the walls of the psychiatric ward come to life in a visually stunning multi-media theatrical experience of Shakespeare's notorious tale of desire, ambition and the supernatural.

Don't miss this 1 hour and 45 minute breathtaking portrayal of Shakespeare’s notorious tale of desire, ambition and the supernatural.

A Tony Award winner for his celebrated performance as the Emcee in the long-running revival of "Cabaret," Alan Cumming's other Broadway credits include Mack the Knife in "The Threepenny Opera" and Otto in "Design for Living."

MACBETH features scenic and costume design by Merle Hensel, lighting design by Natasha Chivers, sound design by Fergus O'Hare and video projection design by Ian William Galloway, voice by Ros Steen, movement by Christine Devaney and music by Max Richter.

These tickets are in the mezzanine.

    Interesting concept outstandingly performed by Alan Cumming. Gettting to hear "The Scottish Play" in total Scottish burr was a bonus and a delight to my ears.

    Yes, Alan Cumming was totally riveting, and I thoroughly enjoyed this show. IF I was seated closer, I would have enjoyed it all the more - why was our group seated in the last 2 rows? I mean, there were so many available seats empty and in front of us - I was thinking of making a move, but didn't want to be the first to do so (maybe next time)..did not want anyone in our group to feel uncomfortable for something I'd do. I don't know what the "regular cost" for our nosebleed seats were, but I absolutely know for sure that tix at 50% off were available at the "Tickets" office on Broadway and 47th. I'm just saying....

      Part of the hit or miss aspect of buying group tix ahead of time through a meet-up is not knowing whether you'll be able to get better later at TKTS. By all accounts this should have been a sell-out not available at TKTS.

      Of course you make perfect sense. Which is also the reason I refuse to fly "stand-by." Been there, done that, have plenty of flight disappointments so I always want a ticket "in hand" for a show, for a flight, etc.

    Really enjoyed it. Stunning to see him inhabiting so many characters and delineating between them so clearly physically and using his voice. The scenes between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth were particularly amazing. Thanks for this opportunity.

    Excellent, it was nice to see a different take on Shakespeare.

    Intriguing play, which allows the theatre goer to stretch their mind.
    Excellent performance from Alan Cumming.

    Just an amazing production, Shakespeare's Macbeth in one hour and forty five minutes!

    April 25, 2013

  • Hitomi

    The show was very modern and different from what I expected. But I had fun.

    April 25, 2013

  • Cindy M.

    Where shall we meet for tonight's performance?

    April 25, 2013

  • Bruce S.

    Yesterday I read a review of MacBeth in The Daily News - they insist anyone attending a performance of this play read the synopsis in the Playbill. Nuff said!

    April 23, 2013

    • Bette H

      Yes, it is beneficial to have knowledge of the story & specific characters of the play before going in. For those who need to brush up on Macbeth and are short on time, check Sparknotes or Cliff notes.

      April 23, 2013

  • Bruce S.

    I've been lost the past 25 years - surely I can handle Macbeth...read it years ago. My favorite Shakespeare's plays are Midsummer night's dream, R & J, Taming of the shrew, and Hamlet; have seen them performed live and of course we ALL fell in love with Shakespeare in Love! Looking forward to this one come Thursday!

      It's honestly not hard to follow. I haven't read it in years and I could distinguish between every character in this performance.

      April 19, 2013

    • Bruce S.

      Reading Shakespeare IS hard to follow - it needs to be seen and heard live, as is the case with all of his plays, as well as Marlowe and others of that period.

      April 19, 2013

  • Andrea

    Shakespeare isn't my thing. Let's try another!

    April 19, 2013

  • Beth S.

    If there are still tix to this available I'd like to add a plus one to my RSVP. Is there a way to do that?

    April 19, 2013

  • Bruce S.

    Any chance of tix for Lucky Guy? Who doesn't adore Forrest Gump live and in person??

    April 19, 2013

  • Rosalie

    Saw the show at Lincoln Center. What is next on your calendar?

    April 19, 2013

  • Raquel L.

    Woo hoo! I can't wait!

  • Bette H

    Saw this production last year, it is awesome! I would be very surprised if Alan Cumming does not win a Tony for his performance. Sorry can not make it on the 25th, already have plans. I am definitely seeing this again though, most likely in June.

    April 17, 2013

  • Bruce S.

    Love Alan C. He was also Night Crawler in X-Men movie!
