A wildly entertaining Macbeth

THE FROG & PEACH THEATRE CO. is pleased to announce their production of William Shakespeare’s MACBETH, directed by Lynnea Benson. MACBETH will play a four-week limited engagement at The West End Theatre (The Church of St. Paul & St. Andrew, 263 West 86th Street, 2nd Fl. --wheelchair accessible). Performances begin Thursday, April 15 and continue through to Sunday, May 9. Opening Night is Saturday, April 17 (7:30 p.m.). MACBETH will be featured in rep with the children’s show Tinkerbell Theatre, which returns April 17th on Saturday and Sundays at 10:30 am and 11:45 am.

Lord & Lady Macbeth are very much in love-- the envy of the Scottish nobility. He’s an extraordinary warrior who’s tough, witty, and honorable.  She’s his lovely, charming, soul mate who wants what’s best for him.  MACBETH is the story of how they lose their souls, in haunting, blood-spattered detail. 

Fueled by ambition, Macbeth performs unspeakable acts when three strange and beautiful Witches appear with promises of greatness.  One murder leads to another; and another, and still more in this shockingly modern tale of brutality, eroticism, and the supernatural.       
Starring MOTI MARGOLIN & KAITLIN LARGE, MACBETH is one of Shakespeare’s most popular tragedies, and FROG & PEACH delivers the goods with all the excitement, humor and grown-up fun audiences have come to expect.      

The production features scenic and lighting design by Jak Prince and costume design by Laura Taber Bacon. Ian Marshall is the fight choreographer, Jenna Lazar is the production stage manager and Alexandra H. Rubin is assistant director. 

MACBETH plays the following regular schedule through Sunday, May 9:
Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. | Fridays at 7:30 p.m. | Saturdays at 7:30p.m. | Sundays at 3 p.m.

Sunday Matinees are followed by an informal talk-back with cast and Artistic Director.
