Few can ever hope to have the ability to tell a story quite like the great English poet and playwright William Shakespeare. One of his most well-known and beloved plays was that of Macbeth, a tragedy about a man who sells his soul to be king, only to have to face the consequences of his actions. Now's your chance to see one of the all-time great plays brought to life in this rendition, directed by Jack O'Brien.
No one has been able to pinpoint the date that Macbeth was written; many believe that the play was penned anywhere from 1603 to 1606. Macbeth has proven to be a timeless classic and has been adapted many times over for film, television and theatre.
Not one of the adaptations has been quite the same, including Alan Cumming's recent one-man show, as well as films like "Men of Respect" (1991), which set the story as a Mafia power struggle; "Macbeth 3000" (2005), which combined the classic story with James Bond; and "Macbeth" (2006), which set the story against a violent gang war.

Macbeth is a story of power, desire, deception and murder. This version attempts to make a tragedy even darker. It focuses less on Macbeth and Lady Macbeth and more on the three Weird Sisters (who famously uttered the line, "Double, double toil and trouble/Fire burn, and cauldron bubble"). Ethan Hawke; Anne-Marie Duff; Malcolm Gets; John Glover; and Byron Jennings star. See them live with Macbeth tickets!
