Full Macbeth cast

This is reported in both Playbill and BroadwayWorld; quotage is from the latter. Note the multiculturalness of the names.

Joining previously-announced Tony Award-winners Liev Schreiber in the title role and Jennifer Ehle as Lady Macbeth will be Joan MacIntosh, Ching Valdes-Aran, and Lynn Cohen as the Weird Sisters, Herb Foster as Duncan, Jacob Fishel as Malcolm, Pedro Pascal as Bloody Sergant/Murderer 2; Mark L. Montgomery as Lennox, Philip Goodwin as Ross, Teagle F. Bouegere as Banquo, Andrew McGinn as Angus/Murderer 1, Sterling K. Brown as Macduff, Sanjit De Silva as Donalbain, Graeme Malcolm as Seyton, Florencia Lozano as Lady Macduff, Tolan Aman as Boy. Seth Duerr, Amefika El-Amin, Stephanie Fieger, Hollie Hunt, Michael Markham, Lucas Near-Verbrugghe, and Clancy O'Connor will be featured in the ensemble.
Ehle, who recently starred in the Old Vic production of The Philadelphia Story, Ehle is an acclaimed stage and screen actress. She won the 2000 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for the revival of Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing, and most recently appeared on Broadway in Design for Living. Her film credits include Possession, Sunshine and Wilde, but she is perhaps best known for playing Elizabeth Bennet in the wildly popular 1996 A&E/BBC miniseries of "Pride and Prejudice." She also won a BAFTA for her portrayal of the willful Austen heroine.

The dates are being reported as June 13 to July 7 in the articles, whereas the Public Theatre site still says July 9.
