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.
Sorry! We couldn't find any events for Macbeth.
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!
