MACBETH: REVISITED:A TALE OF PROPHESY, MURDEROUS AMBITION AND UNCHECKED POWER
Award-winning company The New American Theatre celebrates their 21st Anniversary season with William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth: Revisited” an intimate re-telling of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, a ‘tale of prophesy, murderous ambition, and unchecked power.
Directed by New American Theatre artistic director Jack Stehlin (Odyssey Theatre/NAT’s “Tempest Redux,” Showtime’s “Weeds”), who also plays the title role, Macbeth: Revisited features a gender-bending cast of New American Theatre company members.
ABOUT THE PLAY:
Prompted by supernatural predictions, Scottish warrior Macbeth colludes with his wife to murder his way onto the throne. What happens next is a cautionary tale of prophesy, unchecked power and free will. Derived from Shakespeare's Macbeth, this intimate re-telling is a bare-boned ritual of theater with media.
Macbeth: Revisited is presented by the same team that brought last years smash hit TEMPEST REDUX.
