Alan Cumming’s 1-man ‘Macbeth’ heads to Broadway
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Alan Cumming is taking his Macbeth to Broadway _ and his Macduff and Duncan and Lady Macbeth and the three witches.
Producers said Friday that the Tony Award-winning Scottish actor will bring his one-man "Macbeth" to Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theatre beginning April 7. It will run through June 30.
The production, led by directors John Tiffany and Andrew Goldberg, originated at the National Theatre of Scotland and made a stop last summer in the Lincoln Center Festival.
In the play, "The Good Wife" actor appears as a patient in a white-tiled mental hospital for whom the plot of "Macbeth" is sort of a schizophrenic nightmare. Two other actors play medical staff, but speak few lines. Running only an hour and 45 minutes with no intermission, this "Macbeth" has been trimmed.
During an interview last summer, Cumming, who won a 1998 Tony in Sam Mendes' revival of "Cabaret," said that "Macbeth" has a special poignancy because he made his professional debut playing Malcolm in "Macbeth" in Glasgow in 1985.
In a statement Friday, Cumming said playing his one-man "Macbeth" last year "was the most challenging and fulfilling experience of my career by far, and so I am both honored and daunted to do it again in my adopted hometown of New York City."
