(New York, NY) The highly-anticipated upcoming production of MACBETH on Broadway, starring DANIEL CRAIG in his return to Broadway as Macbeth and RUTH NEGGA’s Broadway debut as Lady Macbeth will now play the Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th Street) and not the Lyceum Theatre as previously announced.
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 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.
