British actress Anne-Marie Duff is poised to make her Broadway debut opposite Ethan Hawke in an upcoming staging of Macbeth.

Duff will play Lady MACbeth in the forthcoming production of William Shakespeare's classic tragedy at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in New York City.

Last month (Jun13), it was revealed Hawke has been cast in the title role in the play, which begins performances on 24 October (13) and officially opens on 21 November (13).

Duff already has a connection to MACbeth - her husband James MCAvoy starred as the tragic Celtic king during a stint in London's West End theatre district earlier this year (13).
