The Lincoln Center Theater Broadway revival of Macbeth, Shakespeare's murderous tale of toil and trouble that stars Ethan Hawke and Anne-Marie Duff, ends its Broadway run Jan. 12 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.
Hawke ("Before Midnight") stars in the title role opposite Duff as Lady Macbeth. Hawke previously collaborated with director O'Brien on the LCT productions of The Coast of Utopia and Henry IV at the Beaumont.
Completing the cast are Shirine Babb (Around the World in 80 Days) as Macbeth Attendant, John Patrick Doherty (The Coward) as Cathness, Austin Durant (War Horse) as Murderer/Siward, Francesca Faridany (Man and Boy) as Hecate, Stephanie Fieger (The Common Pursuit) as Harpier, Ben Horner (War Horse) as Murderer, Ruy Iskandar (Romeo and Juliet) as Donalbain, Aaron Krohn (The Coast of Utopia) as Ross, Jeremiah Maestas (Questa) as Seyton, Christopher McHale (Nikolai and the Others) as Old Man/Doctor, Sam Poon (Billy Elliot) as Macduff's Son, Triney Sandoval (A Free Man of Color) as Menteith, Nathan Stark (As You Like It) as Fleance, Patrick Vaill (When in Disgrace) as Graymalkin, Tyler Lansing Weaks (Sparrow Grass) as Young Siward and Derek Wilson (Agatha Christie) as Lennox.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
