Daniel Craig is known for his legendary portrayal as James Bond in the 007 films. As the star has recently left the role after his recent blockbuster, No Time To Die. As the star had started working on other projects, such as playing a role in Macbeth, which plays on Broadway, it seems they’re indefinitely on hold.

Craig has contracted COVID-19, which led to the cancellation of his upcoming appearances in the Broadway play. The production team for the play took to Twitter in order to apologize to fans about the cancellation of the show.

We apologize for the inconvenience this causes ticket holders, but the safety of our audiences, the cast and crew remains our top priority

Macbeth underwent cancellation only for Saturday’s afternoon and evening shows. The cancellation of events later extended to April 7th, as other members of the company ended up contracted the virus as well.

The Shakespearean tragedy stars a cast of actors such as  Ruth Negga, Phillip James Brannon, Grantham Coleman, Asia Kate Dillon, Maria Dizzia, Amber Gray, Emeka Guindo, Paul Lazar, Bobbi MacKenzie, Michael Patrick Thornton, and Danny Wolohan.
