Past Classic Perspectives

Behind the Scenes

Wednesday, October 16 after the 7PM performance

Join members of the cast and creative team for one of our traditional post-performance talkbacks offering a more detailed look at the show’s creative process, moderated by CSC Artistic Director John Doyle.

Women of Shakespeare

Sunday, November 3, after the 2pm performance

Using the characters in Macbeth as a launching point, this post-show talk between directors John Doyle and Phyllida Lloyd (known for directing the all female Shakespeare Trilogy: The Tempest, Julius Caesar, and Henry IV) will explore the power of women in Shakespeare. They’ll uncover how female roles in classic works relate to feminism, politics, and women’s issues today.

Saturday Symposium

Saturday, November 9 after the 2pm performance

Take in a special post-matinee chat with scholars, Sybille Bruun-Moss (Shakespeare Forum), Stephen Burdman (NY Classical Theatre), Lauren Robertson (Columbia), and Daniel Spectro (NYU). This panel will take an in-depth look at the dramaturgical and production history of the play.

Superstition and Shakespeare

Thursday, December 5 after the 7pm performance

Is “The Scottish Play” truly cursed? Why do some people refuse to say Macbeth in a theater? Are the witches in the play chanting actual spells? Join Dr. Richard C. McCoy (Distinguished Professor of English at Queens College and The Graduate Center, CUNY) and Dr. Erika T. Lin (Associate Professor, Theatre and Performance at The Graduate Center, CUNY) after the play as we attempt to answer these questions and discuss theatrical superstitions and the supernatural legacy of this great work
