Macbeth is cursed. Or so say superstitious theater companies that avoid performing what they call, in hushed whispers, The Scottish Play. This autumn, however, The Theatre Project tries its luck staging the famously bloody tale of kings, fate, and murder. Instead of the palaces of 16th-century Scotland, the supernaturally inspired treachery inhabits the low-lit smokiness of a Jazz Age speakeasy—and meanwhile, the cast dons suspenders and pasties, variously.
Of course, the plot alone enchants. When the titular general encounters three witches, they let loose with a stunning prophecy: he’s destined to rule. On hearing the news, Lady Macbeth isn’t content to simply wait for the crown. Instead, she spurs her husband to action and sets in motion a series of events that will cover both their hands in blood, cloud their minds with guilt, and make all their future dinner parties really, really awkward. Although the prophecies come true, the question remains: without them, would Macbeth have become king at all?
The Theatre Project
There’s growth as an actor, and then there’s growth as a human being—but for the founders of The Theatre Project, there’s no difference between the two. Emphasizing that actors are indeed ever-evolving human beings and not, as previously thought, aliens practicing how to be human beings, The Theatre Project has transformed into more than a theater company. Driven by a creative ensemble of artists who’ve banded together to revamp the modern theatergoing experience, it has become an organism. With fresh adaptations such as a take on 4.48 Psychosis, the Project has earned the title of “Adventurous New Company” from The Villager, and its world-premiere productions have been rewarded with sold-out shows and have inspired Downtown Magazine to hail the Project as “one to watch in the next year.” Yet, with each subsequent year, it continues to remain one to watch, as it puts imagination and teamwork into brand-new works and creative interpretations of the classics.
