Photos: Macbeth Opens At Lyceum Theatre

After playing sold-out, critically acclaimed engagements at BAM, The West End's Gielgud Theatre and UK's Chichester Festival Theatre, Patrick Stewart returns to Broadway in the five-time Olivier Award-nominated production of Macbeth. The show officially opened at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre. The Evening Standard Award-winning production will play 64 performances only, officially closing on May 24th.

"In one of Shakespeare's greatest dramas, Patrick Stewart plays Macbeth – a man utterly determined to obtain the royal crown.  Aided by his even more ambitious and ruthless wife, Macbeth murders the king and a comrade only to lose everything by the play's end.   In his New York debut, Rupert Goold takes inspiration from Stalin's Great Terror and directs this psychological and chilling tragedy in a stark, austere production that places Macbeth in a timeless, nameless, and lawless country," describe press notes.

Patrick Stewart received the Evening Standard Award for Best Actor and the Critics Circle Theatre Award for Best Shakespearean Performance for this production.  Rupert Goold received both the Evening Standard and Critics Circle Theatre awards for Best Director.  The production also received the What's On Stage Award for Best Shakespearean Production.  Macbeth has also been nominated for five Olivier Awards: Best Actor for Patrick Stewart, Best Director for Rupert Goold, Best Revival, Best Lighting Design for Howard Harrison, and Best Set Design for Anthony Ward and Lorna Heavey.

The cast features Michael Feast as Macduff, Kate Fleetwood as Lady Macbeth, and Martin Turner as Banquo, as well as Oliver Birch, Ben Carpenter, Polly Frame, Scott Handy, Sophie Hunter, Hywel John, Christopher Knott, Niamh McGrady, Bill Nash, Christopher Patrick Nolan, Mark Rawlings, and Tim Treloar.
