Daniel is set to return to Broadway in the starring role of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, with Ruth Negga as Lady Macbeth next spring. The production will run for 15 weeks and will be directed by Tony Award winner Sam Gold. Performances will begin on March 29, 2022 at Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre, with an official opening on April 28, 2022. Ticket presales will start on October 6th, with general ticket sales starts on October 8th.
“Daniel is not only a great film actor but a magnificent theatre actor as well,” said Macbeth producer Barbara Broccoli, who also produces the James Bond film franchise that featured Craig in the title role. “I am thrilled that he will be supporting the return of Broadway playing this iconic role with the exquisitely talented Ruth Negga making her Broadway debut and under the expert direction of Sam Gold.”
Gold, who was Tony-nominated in 2017 for A Doll’s House, Part 2 and won the award in 2015 for Fun Home, said in a statement, “I am beyond thrilled to be participating in this historic season as theatre re-emerges, and to be working with two such masterful actors on one of dramatic literature’s most challenging and epic dramas.”DEADLINE
