"Macbeth": In one of Shakespeare’s greatest dramas, Patrick Stewart plays Macbeth—a man utterly determined to obtain the royal crown. Aided by his even more ambitious and ruthless wife, Macbeth murders the king and a comrade only to lose everything by the play’s end. In his New York debut, Rupert Goold takes inspiration from Stalin’s Great Terror and directs this psychological and chilling tragedy in a stark, austere production that places Macbeth in a timeless, nameless, and lawless country. -- Shubert Organization
