FREEZE FRAME: Alan Cumming Helps Install MACBETH Marquee
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 will return to Broadway this spring in a one-man interpretation of Shakespeare's darkest and most powerful tragedy, Macbeth.
Cumming just helped intsall the marquee at the Barrymore Theatre, and you can check out a photo preview from the festivities below. Check back later for full coverage!
Produced by Ken Davenport, The National Theatre of Scotland's Macbeth will 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 ("Black Watch"), 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.
