The Play

The famed creators behind CST’s sold-out The Tempest, Aaron Posner and Teller (of Penn & Teller), reunites for a new, enchanted take on “the Scottish play.” Diving into the psyches of Macbeth and his Lady, Shakespeare’s seductive, twisted text delivers an explosive, unforgettable examination of what drives a person to risk utter destruction for power. Magic, witches, dark moors, and stunning sights will delight and trick the eye. Presented in the flexible performance space of The Yard, a unique configuration specifically designed for this show will perfectly match Teller's and Posner's wild imaginings in a thrilling culmination to the season.
