Anglo Pacific Takes One-Man Macbeth from Glasgow to Broadway

Jun 18, 2013
Specialist theatrical mover Anglo Pacific has shipped a consignment of Shakespearian paraphernalia from the National Theatre of Scotland in Glasgow to New York’s Ethel Barrymore Theatre for a 73-date Broadway run of Macbeth.
Technical Director for the National Theatre of Scotland, Niall Black said, “This is a big deal for us as not only is it a radical interpretation of the tragedy, one where the protagonist, Alan Cumming, is the only one playing Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, Banquo, Macduff and all the rest, but it is also, we believe, the first time that the ‘Scottish play’ will have been performed by a Scottish actor and a Scottish company on Broadway.  Getting the set there on time was crucial, there could be no slippage, but thankfully Anglo Pacific has always delivered for us.

Niall continued, “This is the second time that Anglo Pacific has shipped the Macbeth set to New York, it also went across last June to appear at the Lincoln Centre Festival, and both times things went very smoothly.”

Andrew Nelson, Branch Manager for Anglo Pacific in Glasgow, was delighted to be trusted once more with another show from the National Theatre of Scotland.  “Shipments such as these create a series of challenges regarding time sensitivity and temporary importation under the ATA Carnet, which permits import and export to many countries without formally clearing national border frontiers and the payment of normally applicable duties and taxes.  Timely arrival of the set is vital so subsequent rehearsals and performances run to schedule.  Close client relationships ensure we meet those expectations.”

The show was premiered at Glasgow’s Tramway Theatre in June 2012, and is a bold re-imagining of Shakespeare’s chilling tale of desire, ambition and the supernatural.  The production is set in a psychiatric unit and centres on a feverish patient who is reliving the story of Macbeth.  This will mark the company’s eighth run in New York and the National Theatre of Scotland’s second on Broadway.
