The Park Avenue Armory has announced that its upcoming U.S. premiere staging of Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh's Macbeth will star Kenneth Branagh. The production is set to take place in June 2014. Branagh is known for directing and starring in several Shakespeare film adaptations, including Henry V, Othello, and Hamlet.

This production of the classic play combines the creative team's vision and unconventional take on the play with the Armory's unique space to allow audiences to relive this timeless story in a new way. The play will also star Alex Kingston as Lady Macbeth.

Additional casting and performance dates will be announced at a later date.

The production will feature set and costume design by Christopher Oram, composition by Patrick Doyle, lighting design by Neil Austin, and sound design by Christopher Shutt.
