Macbeth in Stride
Macbeth in Stride is a high-voltage mashup—part rock and roll, part Shakespeare, and yet totally original. It follows the descent of Lady Macbeth and her husband, using iconic music by Ike and Tina Turner, the Doors, and others. Interspersed with famous lines from Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth in Stride takes an intimate look at a relationship in turmoil and the effects of vaulting ambition. It asks the question, How do we punish and celebrate women who push too hard, who want too much, who sing too loud?
