Macbeth - back and on Broadway!

The National Theatre of Scotland’s production of Macbeth, featuring a tour- de- force performance by Alan Cumming is being presented on Broadway by a leading US theatre producer.

The production premiered at Tramway, Glasgow in June 2012 and then at the Lincoln Center Festival in New York.

Ken Davenport, an independent New York producer will be presenting the production for 73 performances from 7 April 2013.

Alan Cumming is reunited with the National Theatre of Scotland’s John Tiffany to offer this radical new interpretation of “the Scottish play”.

Macbeth is directed by John Tiffany (Once-currently on Broadway and Black Watch) and Andrew Goldberg (The Bomb-itty of Errors).

We are thrilled that a leading New York commercial producer is taking on our acclaimed production of Macbeth, featuring Alan Cumming’s stunning performance. We believe that this will be the first time that Shakespeare’s Scottish play will have been performed by a Scottish actor and a Scottish company on Broadway.

This will mark the Company’s eighth run in New York and the National Theatre of Scotland’s second on Broadway, following presentations of The Wolves in the Walls at the New Victory Theater, three runs of Black Watch and Beautiful Burnout at St Ann’s Warehouse, and The Bacchae and Macbeth at the Lincoln Center Festival.
