The real novelty of this production lies elsewhere: Mr. Cumming does not just play Macbeth but also all of the other significant roles in what is essentially a one-man, one-act hurtle through this Shakespearean tragedy.
Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
Set in a psychiatric unit, Cumming plays a psych patient who is reliving the story of Macbeth, inhabiting all of the doomed characters in Shakespeare's bloody masterpiece - without the need for an intermission.
Macbeth is set in a clinical room deep within a dark psychiatric unit. The lone patient, Cumming relives the infamous story and inhabites each role himself. Closed circuit television cameras watch his every move as the walls of the psychiatric ward come to life in a multi-media theatrical experience of Shakespeare's notorious tale of desire, ambition and the supernatural.
Two additional actors to be announced will join Cumming for the Broadway run.
