Tony Award winner and two-time Emmy nominee Alan Cumming (Cabaret, “The Good Wife”) returned to Broadway in a “bravura performance” (Entertainment Weekly) of Shakespeare’s darkest and most powerful tragedy, Macbeth.
Directed by Tony winner John Tiffany (Once) and Andrew Goldberg, this “stirring turn by Alan Cumming packing theatrical thunder and lightning” (Daily News) was set in a clinical room deep within a dark psychiatric unit. Cumming was the lone patient, reliving the infamous story and inhabiting each role himself. Closed circuit television cameras watched the patient’s every move as the walls of the psychiatric ward came to life in a visually stunning multi-media theatrical experience.
Alan Cumming stunned in this breathtaking 100-minute “radical re-imagining” (Variety) of Shakespeare’s notorious tale of desire, ambition and the supernatural.
