Something Broadway this way comes! The full cast for the upcoming Macbeth Broadway revival has been confirmed, with the new cast members joining the previously announced Daniel Craig as Macbeth and Ruth Negga as Lady Macbeth. The show begins performances at the Longacre Theatre on March 29 ahead of an April 28 opening.
The full cast includes Hadestown Tony nominee Amber Gray as Banquo, Tony nominee Maria Dizzia as Lady Macduff, Grantham Coleman as Macduff, Phillip James Brannon as Ross, Asia Kate Dillon as Malcolm, Emeka Guindo as Fleance, Paul Lazar as Duncan, Bobbi MacKenzie as Macduff's child, Michael Patrick Thornton as Lennox, and Danny Wolohan as Seyton.

Sam Gold directs this classic Shakespeare tragedy after recently directing another, a King Lear revival starring Glenda Jackson. In Macbeth, a trio of witches prophesy that the titular nobleman will climb the ranks of power, and goaded on by his wife, he resolves to eliminate anyone standing in the way of his kingship.
In addition to Negga, Dillon, Guindo, Lazar, Smith, and Thornton are all making their Broadway debuts with Macbeth.
