It will be Daniel's first return to Broadway since 2016 when he starred alongside David Oyelowo in Sam's production of Othello. Ruth will be making her Broadway debut as Lady Macbeth after appearing in the Gate Theater of Dublin’s 2020 production of Hamlet in Brooklyn.

"I am beyond thrilled to be participating in this historic season as theatre reemerges, and to be working with two such masterful actors on one of dramatic literature’s most challenging and epic dramas," Sam added.

"I can’t wait to get started!"

For the special occasion on Tuesday, the actor was accompanied by his eldest daughter, Ella Loudon.

Daniel, 53, looked suave in a pink velvet dinner jacket while he posed for photos with his 29-year-old daughter.

They were later snapped walking hand-in-hand following the after-party at Annabel's Club in Mayfair.

Previews of Macbeth begin on 29 March, with the show officially opening for a 15-week limited run on 28 April at the Lyceum Theatre in Manhattan, New York City.
