Shakespeare Fans Won’t Want to Miss “Macbeth” at the Sidney Harman Hall April 25th – May 28th
The Shakespeare Theatre Company presents Macbeth at Sidney Harman Hall, now through May 28th. The show is directed by Tony Award nominee Liesl Tommy, and Shakespeare’s classic is reimagined with a modern-day, third-world setting of civil war and invasion. Tommy uses savvy storytelling from her Broadway experiences to bring a contemporary twist to an old story, making it relevant to a 21st-century audience.
The story follows Macbeth and Lady Macbeth as they experience murderous ambition, only to plunge their lives into chaos. Jesse J. Perez and Nikkole Salter lead the cast as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, and the production is about three hours long with a 15 minute intermission. Tickets range in price, starting around $22.
