Ethan Hawke: Actor to play Macbeth on Broadway
NEW YORK (AP) — The Scottish play isn't taking much of a break before coming back: Ethan Hawke plans to return to Broadway this fall to play the title role in "Macbeth."
The Shakespeare tragedy will mark a reunion for Mr. Hawke with director Jack O'Brien at Lincoln Center Theater, where he starred in "Henry IV" and "The Coast of Utopia," for which he was nominated for a Tony Award.
Mr. Hawke currently is starring in the horror film "The Purge" and the romantic drama "Before Midnight," the third film in a series with "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset."
"Macbeth" had its latest incarnation on Broadway in a one-man show by Alan Cumming, which is set to close in July. Patrick Stewart led another cast in 2008.
For those who can't wait, a "Macbeth" starring Kenneth Branagh and Alex Kingston will be broadcast to movie theaters across the country from the Manchester International Festival as part of Britain's National Theatre Live in July.
Performances of Mr. Hawke's "Macbeth" begin Oct. 24. The show is one of four that Lincoln Center Theater announced Thursday for the upcoming season, including the new Bruce Norris play "Domesticated," directed by Anna D. Shapiro and starring Laurie Metcalf.
James Lapine will direct his own adaptation of Moss Hart's autobiography, "Act One," and Doug Hughes will direct the world premiere of "The City of Conversation," a new play by Anthony Giardina.
