A rare cinematic event is coming to New York theatres for only two days: Ralph Fiennes in Macbeth.

The Daily Telegraph calls the film, “full-voltage visceral,” while The Times of London raves it is, “Succession in a war zone.” Reflecting a contemporary resonance, the film intensifies the play’s exploration of ambition, manipulation, and the destructive allure of power.

Currently riveting audiences in Washington D.C., after a sold-out UK run, Macbeth is played by Tony and BAFTA Award-winner Fiennes (Antony & Cleopatra, Schindler’s List, Coriolanus) and Olivier Award-winner Indira Varma (Present Laughter, Obi Wan Kenobi, Luther). This production of the epic Shakespeare drama, designed for a custom-built space, brings, as  The I says, “Shakespeare’s tragedy pulsing into the present day.”

Directed by Simon Godwin (Antony & Cleopatra, Romeo & Juliet, Hansard­) with set and costume design by Frankie Bradshaw (Jerusalem, Blues for an Alabama Sky),  Macbeth is unmissable on the big screen. The sold-out Washington, D.C. production, staged by the Shakespeare Theatre Company, runs from April 9 to May 5. In London and following seasons in Liverpool and Edinburgh, Macbeth will have played to sell out audiences of over 100,000 people at 110 performances.

Given Godwin’s proven directorial skills and the undeniable talents of Fiennes and Varma, this limited release is an event not to be missed by serious theatre enthusiasts and Shakespeare aficionados alike.
