Actor Alan Cumming can play a huge array of characters, from an evil Russian computer programmer to a blue, be-tailed mutant to Eli Gold, the venal public relations guru from The Good Wife. Cumming is putting that versatility to the test by starring in a one-man version of Shakespeare’s MacBeth for a limited engagement run at Lincoln Center. This latest reimagining casts Cumming as the only patient in a psych ward, where he is inhabited by the different characters from the classic tragedy. For those of us who can’t attend the show in person, Simon & Schuster Audio has recorded an audiobook version (out July 3) that captures the intensity of Cumming’s performance. Check out an interview with Cumming and an exclusive audio excerpt below!
