Public Theatre publicity

A bit of buzz from BroadwayWorld about Macbeth and other productions on this summer.

This summer’s production of Macbeth will feature an outstanding team and exceptional artists. Liev Schreiber, who will perform the title role, is a noted Shakespearean actor whom The New York Times called “perhaps the finest American stage actor of his generation” and who won a Tony Award last year for his work in Glengarry Glen Ross on Broadway. Jennifer Ehle, performing Lady Macbeth, is a critically acclaimed actress who received the 2000 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for her role in The Real Thing and a BAFTA Best Actress Award for her work as Elizabeth Bennett in the BBC/A&E production of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Director Moisés Kaufman directed the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning I Am My Own Wife on Broadway and wrote Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde and The Laramie Project, among the most performed plays in America over the last decade.
