Ethan Hawke certainly has range. During this year alone, he reprised his role as Jesse in the final chapter of Richard Linklater's chatty Before... trilogy, is starring in the car-chase flick The Getaway opposite Selena Gomez and, in the autumn, will play the title role of Macbeth at one of Broadway's most venerable theaters. The latest Broadway revival of Shakespeare's great tragedy costars the acclaimed British actress Anne-Marie Duff as Lady Macbeth and reunites Hawke with his Tony-winning Coast of Utopia director, Jack O'Brien. It sounds like both a satisfying palate cleanser and main course—not just for Hawke, who will be fresh off promoting The Getaway, but also for traditionalist fans of the Bard who were disappointed by Alan Cumming's abstract Macbeth this spring.
Vivian Beaumont Theater, 150 W. 65th St. Previews start October 24; opens November 21.
