Macbeth is cursed. Or so say superstitious theater companies that avoid performing what they call, in hushed whispers, The Scottish Play. This spring, however, the State Theatre will try its luck staging the famously bloody tale of kings, fate, and murder. 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?
State Theatre New Jersey
The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
