A Bloody Give Away: Tickets to Macbeth at Lincoln Center
Something wicked this way comes! Again! Yes, there's another production of Macbeth in New York again. This promises to be a very sexy and sumptuous production at Lincoln Center Theatre - all black, white and especially blood red - directed by Jack O'Brien with costumes by Catherine Zuber. Ethan Hawke and Anne-Marie Duff star as the Macbeths. The other principals are Richard Easton as Duncan, Francesca Faridany as Hecate, Brian D'Arcy James as Banquo, Jonny Arsini as Malcom and Daniel Sunjata as Macduff. There should be plenty of fun with the witches played by John Glover, Malcolm Gets and Byron Jennings.
I love Macbeth! My favorite Shakespeare is still The Tempest, but having seen the Scottish play twice already this year, I was surprised to realize how much I really do love it. The sex and politics juxtaposed against the supernatural lends to a thrilling experience, no matter the setting or size of production.
I just can't resist seeing this production of the Scottish play, which is currently in previews at the Vivien Beaumont. Tickets are available via Telecharge...or to win a voucher for two tickets, tell me why you want to see it in the comment section below. I'll throw your name in a hat and draw a winner at random in honor of Opening Night on November 21st. (Mention this post in a tweet and that will count too - I'm @adventuresarahb)
