Shakespeare’s tale of murderous ambition moves from Scotland to an island setting in this stirring reimagining, where mysticism reigns and true horror unfolds.  Commemorating the 75th anniversary of Orson Welles’ dynamic 1936 Voodoo Macbeth, this production features a predominately African-American cast, including local favorite Neal A. Ghant as Macbeth.  Presented in partnership with NBAF (National Black Arts Festival), this show is a celebration of the strength of a good story in changing times.
*Appropriate for ages 12 and up.
