Lower Manhattan's Shakespeare Downtown will present free performances of Shakespeare's "Macbeth," co-directed by Geoffrey Horne and Alec Baldwin. The fully-realized production of this timeless tragedy of ambition and hubris plays inside the open-air walls of Castle Clinton from June 13-23, 2024 on Thursdays-Sundays at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are free and available at the door of Castle Clinton National Monument at the Battery at 5:45 p.m. on the day of the performance.

Set in 11th century Scotland, this captivating classic follows the journey of Macbeth, a valiant general whose thirst for power and unchecked ambition leads him down a path of witches, betrayal, murder, guilt, and consequence.

Says co-director Baldwin, "I've had the great fortune of being Geoffrey Horne's student and friend since 1979. I have long admired Shakespeare Downtown's work and look forward to working on this project with him."
