The highly-anticipated production of Macbeth starring Daniel Craig in his return to Broadway as Macbeth and Ruth Negga in her Broadway debut as Lady Macbeth is set to arrive on Broadway this spring. Originally announced to play the Lyceum Theatre, it was revealed today that the production’s new home would be the Longacre Theatre where Diana The Musical is set to close Sunday, December 19.

All Lyceum Theatre ticket holders will be notified about the exchange of their tickets to the Longacre Theatre. All previous transactions will remain intact and customers will have comparable, if not identical, locations at the Longacre Theatre.

Macbeth is directed by Tony Award winner Sam Gold (A Doll’s House, Part 2; Fun Home) and begins performances on Tuesday, March 29, 2022 and officially opens on Thursday, April 28, 2022. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

Macbeth is produced on Broadway by Barbara Broccoli, The Shubert Organization, Michael G. Wilson, and Frederick Zollo. Patrick Daly serves as Executive Producer.

A tale of malice, matrimony and murder, Macbeth tells the story of one couple’s obsession with power—and their guilt after doing the unthinkable. For 15 weeks only, this thrilling new production will capture the passion and ferocity of Shakespeare’s most haunting text like never before.
