Kenneth Branagh - for New York debut

Kenneth Branagh is set to make his New York stage debut when he brings his production of Macbeth to the US.

The play was recently staged as part of the Manchester International Festival last month in an army base and he is now set to perform at the Park Avenue Armory in New York.

Branagh, who stars in and directs the production, said “I am delighted that we have the chance to recreate Macbeth in this epic setting.”

Alex Kingston, who played Lady Macbeth in the original festival production is also set to make her New York stage debut.

The play drew huge critical praise at the festival.
