Photo Coverage: Alan Cumming & MACBETH Cast Celebrate Opening Night!
Broadway's powerful new production of Shakespeare's Macbeth, starring Tony and Olivier Award winner and two-time Emmy Award nominee Alan Cumming (Cabaret, "The Good Wife"), opened on Broadway last night, April 21, 2013. Veteran stage actors Jenny Sterlinand Brendan Titley complete the cast. BroadwayWorld.com was there to capture the night, and you can check out photos from the after party below!
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.
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.
