BWW TV: MACBETH, Starring Alan Cumming, Opens Tonight on Broadway!
Opening tonight, April 21 at 6 p.m. at Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theatre, is Tony and Olivier Award winner and two-time Emmy nominee Alan Cumming's acclaimed one-man interpretation of Macbeth. In celebration of the show's opening, BroadwayWorld brings you highlights from The National Theatre of Scotland production, where it played prior to Broadway!
A tour-de-force performance directed by Tony Award winner John Tiffany (Once) and Andrew Goldberg (The Bomb-itty of Errors), The National Theatre of Scotland's 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.
