October 10 – December 15, 2019
at the Lynn F. Angelson Theater
BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
DIRECTED BY JOHN DOYLE
A terrifyingly prophetic tale of revenge, murder, and madness, Macbeth ominously traces the fallout when the darkest side of humanity cheats its way into a position of power. Often referred to as “The Scottish Play” by superstitious theatergoers due to the purported witchcraft found within its text, Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s bloodiest, scariest, and yet, most popular tragedies.
The Cast of Macbeth includes:
Raffi Barsoumian (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, “The Code”)
Nadia Bowers (Describe the Night, The Farnsworth Invention)
N’Jameh Camara (The Color Purple, X: Or Betty Shabazz vs. The Nation)
Erik Lochtefeld (King Kong; Napoli, Brooklyn)
Mary Beth Peil (Anastasia, “The Good Wife”)
Corey Stoll (First Man, “House of Cards”)
Antonio Michael Woodard (A Human Being, of a Sort)
Jade Wu (“Luke Cage,” Mother Courage and her Children)
