POSTPONEMENT UPDATE

JULY 16, 2020—We’ve been working hard behind-the-scenes to make preparations for our upcoming 25th Anniversary Season. While our intention was to have announced a fully reimagined schedule by now, it’s become clear productions on our Gil Cates Theater and Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater stages will not resume before Spring 2021.

Although our physical theater stages will be dark a little while longer, we’re continuing to develop new productions under our Geffen Stayhouse banner to launch alongside The Present, with more details to follow soon. In addition, we’ll be rescheduling the postponed productions of Macbeth and The Enigmatist as part of the new season, and the full lineup will be unveiled as soon as possible.

The health, safety and well-being of our patrons, artists, employees and all Geffen visitors remain our top priorities. We look forward to welcoming you back in 2021, once we can all gather and celebrate the wonder, camaraderie and spirit of live theater.


OVERVIEW

"Something wicked this way comes." Three witches, a prophecy and the ambitious general Macbeth (Emmy Award nominee Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Game of Thrones) set the stage for Shakespeare’s timely and timeless tragedy about the dangerous allure of power. As Macbeth violently sets forth to fulfill his fate, he and his wife find themselves mired in murder and cover-up in a bloody attempt to hold onto the throne.

Following a triumphant collaboration on Game of Thrones, director Matt Shakman and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau reunite for Shakespeare’s most cinematic play.

The David Lee Foundation has provided major support for this production.
