A highlight of last summer’s Lincoln
Center Festival, the National Theatre of Scotland’s Macbeth starring Scottish actor Alan Cumming as a mental patient who channels just about every single character in the play is back for a limited engagement on Broadway. Staged by Tony winner John Tiffany (Once), who directed Cumming in The Bacchae in 2008, and
Andrew Goldberg, this minimalist reimagining, aided by innovative video design, is set in a room in a psychiatric unit, where a closed-circuit camera follows the patient as he lives out the gory tale over and over again.
Sundays, 3 p.m.; Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, 7 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: April 7. Continues through June 30, 2013
