Macbeth is cursed. Or so say superstitious theater companies that avoid performing what they call, in hushed whispers, The Scottish Play. This summer, however, Theatre VCU will try their 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?
For nearly seven decades, Theatre VCU has worked toward two goals: to help create a new generation of theater artists and to ensure the tanks on their applause-powered generators stay full. Young performers, costumers, scenic and lighting designers, and stage managers all hone their crafts and nurture their talents with the theatre—and they manage to create some pretty great art along the way. Recent productions have included the R-rated puppet musical Avenue Q, Sarah Ruhl’s Dead Man’s Cell Phone, and George C. Wolfe’s powerful classic The Colored Museum.
