Much-Awaited London Macbeth Begins Previews Nov. 7

News   Much-Awaited London Macbeth Begins Previews Nov. 7

Macbeth may be, traditionally, an unlucky play — a fact often blamed on the witchcraft scenes that are an integral part of the production — but as previews of Edward Hall's production begin Nov. 7 at the Albery, things are looking very rosy for producer Sonia Friedman as the show has a very healthy box-office advance.

Macbeth opens on Nov. 14 when the critics will decide whether the advance sales — based on the triple appeal of movie star Sean Bean, stage and screen star Samantha Bond and director Edward Hall — are justified by the production itself.
