Daniel Craig will tackle "the Scottish play" with Ruth Negga in a new adaptation of Macbeth on Broadway. It will be produced by Barbara Broccoli.
“Daniel is not only a great film actor but a magnificent theatre actor as well,” Broccoli said in a statement. “I am thrilled that he will be supporting the return of Broadway playing this iconic role with the exquisitely talented Ruth Negga making her Broadway debut and under the expert direction of Sam Gold.”
The show will be directed by Tony award-winner Sam Gold who previously directed Craig and Hugh Jackman in "A Steady Rain."
“I am beyond thrilled to be participating in this historic season as theatre re-emerges, and to be working with two such masterful actors on one of dramatic literature’s most challenging and epic dramas,” said Gold. “I can’t wait to get started!”
Macbeth will be a limited 15-week engagement beginning on 29 March 2022.
