What are we seeing and when?
"Macbeth" at Classic Stage Company (136 E 13th Street) on various dates, from Friday, October 11, 2019 at 8:00 PM to Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 7:00 PM.
What's The Story?
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.
What's the deal?
Tickets are $57 for preview performances (regular price $77) and $67 after opening (regular price $76). Tickets for all performances are in orchestra rows C-E. These prices includes our fee. Some of the shows include a talkback. The talkback schedule is as follows:
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.
CLASSIC PERSPECTIVES: 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.
CLASSIC PERSPECTIVES: SATURDAY SYMPOSIUM
Saturday, November 9 (after the 2pm performance)
Take in a special post-matinee chat with scholars and experts about Shakespeare and Macbeth. This panel will take an in-depth look at the dramaturgical and production history of the play.
CLASSIC PERSPECTIVES: 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 us after the play as we attempt to answer these questions and discuss theatrical superstitions and the supernatural legacy of this great work.
