Time Out Says

This 1,091-seater—with a French Neoclassical–style exterior and a Beaux Arts–style interior—is one theater where the balcony seating is preferable to the mezzanine (which has almost no rake). Built in 1913, it has seen work by Ethel Barrymore and George S. Kaufman. In 1935, the Group Theatre was in residence, offering three productions by Clifford Odets: Waiting for Lefty, Till the Day I Die and Paradise Lost. The casts featured Odets, Elia Kazan, Bobby Lewis, Stella Adler, Morris Carnovsky and Sanford Meisner. Recent successful revivals at the theater have included Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Talk Radio and Boeing-Boeing.

What's On

Macbeth

  • Shakespeare

Now that Daniel Craig has wrapped up his longtime gig as film killer James Bond, he has time to return to one of his passions: killing people on stage. The actor plays the title role in this limited Broadway run of the Scottish play, in which an ambitious nobleman, egged on by witches, murders his way to the crown; the Ethiopian-Irish actor Ruth Negga, of Loving and Passing, joins him as the ruthless Lady M. The production reunites Craig with director Sam Gold, who helmed the 2016 New York Theatre Workshop production of Othello.
