By William Shakespeare
Directed by Daniel Sullivan
Roda Theatre · Feb 19 – Apr 10, 2016
Tony and Academy Award winner Frances McDormand stars as Lady Macbeth in Shakespeare’s murderous play about the lust for power and the fickleness of fate. Driven by an evil prophesy and his scheming wife, Macbeth kills the king and claims his crown, thus beginning a moral descent into a reign of terror. This thrilling new production is helmed by Tony and Obie Award winner Daniel Sullivan – dubbed the go-to guy for Shakespeare by the New York Times.
