Branagh to bring Macbeth to New York stage

Sir Kenneth Branagh will bring his version of "the Scottish play" by William Shakespeare to the drill hall of the Park Avenue Armory in New York City in June 2014. Sir Kenneth said: "I am delighted that we have the chance to recreate Macbeth in this epic setting."

Branagh previously staged the play "in a deconsecrated church at the Manchester International Festival" in July, 2013. The Guardian called it "an exciting production that shows why Branagh is such a fine Shakespearean actor".
