Aquila’s Macbeth is an immediate, sexually charged & visceral production that places Shakespeare’s language at its core. Performed by an accomplished cast of British and American actors with extensive credits with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal National Theatre, West End, major regional, London and New York theatre, this superb company brings Shakespeare’s intoxicating language to vivid life. By returning the Bard to the ensemble and focusing on the emotional intensity, sexual energy, and intricate relationships in Macbeth, this compelling production dares to simply trust in the power of this magnificent play.”
This Macbeth is Aquila’s 21st season of Shakespeare and the company’s excellence in ensemble work and verse speaking led the New Yorker to write, “Aquila’s production is beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect” and the New York Times to describe Aquila as “an extraordinary inventive and disciplined outfit.” Macbeth has been touring major performing arts centers across the United States playing to audiences in excess of 1000 a night. Don’t miss this opportunity to see simply superb Shakespeare by an outstanding ensemble in New York at the beautiful brand new performance space at Judson right on Washington Square.
Aquila Theatre’s production is part of Shakespeare for a New Generation, a national program of the National Endowment for the Arts in cooperation with Arts Midwest.
