Covid-19 temporarily halts Daniel Craig’s return to Broadway

Daniel Craig’s return to Broadway in a new version of Macbeth has been temporarily halted after the actor contracted Covid-19.

Ednesday’s matinee and evening performances were canceled after the James Bond actor tested positive.

In a tweet late Saturday night, the show said all performances through Thursday had been canceled “due to the finding of a limited number of positive Covid test results within the company.”

Craig stars in a revival of William Shakespeare’s tragedy, while Ruth Negga makes her Broadway debut as Lady Macbeth.

Macbeth – directed by Tony Award winner Sam Gold – is set at the Lyceum Theatre.

According to folklore, Macbeth was cursed from the start when a coven of witches contradicted Shakespeare with actual incantations and cursed the play. Other productions were plagued by accidents.

Craig last appeared on Broadway in a 2013 revival of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, starring his wife Rachel Weisz and directed by Mike Nichols.

The actor also starred opposite Hugh Jackman in 2009’s A Steady Rain.

Gold directed Craig in an Off-Broadway production of Othello in 2016, opposite David Oyelowo.
