POSTPONEMENT NOTICE

APRIL 15, 2020—Due to these unprecedented, evolving times and ongoing social distancing guidelines in Los Angeles, we have postponed the remaining productions in our 2019/2020 season, including The Enigmatist and Macbeth. We are exploring opportunities to reschedule these productions alongside the previously announced Geffen Playhouse 25th anniversary season lineup in 2020/2021. If you are a subscriber or current ticketholder, our box office will be in touch with you to make the necessary arrangements to accommodate this change of schedule as soon as it is finalized. We thank you for your patience, as response times may be delayed.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Geffen Playhouse when we’re once again able to open our doors to the public. And when that time comes, we’ll be ready with newly implemented and enhanced measures to provide a safe, comfortable and healthy environment for all our Geffen patrons and visitors. Your well-being is our first priority.

In the meantime, we invite you to visit Geffen Stayhouse every Wednesday for original content from Geffen alums and some of our favorite theater friends.

Be safe. Be healthy. Stay home.


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.
