Classic Stage Company's Artistic Director John Doyle has now announced the new productions to make up the company's upcoming 52nd off-Broadway season. Mr. Doyle commented: “All of the works this season explore disturbing aspects of humanity. Yet they all have beauty. There’s nothing more poetically beautiful than Macbeth’s ‘Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow’ speech; there’s tenderness in the two gothic plays; there’s so much humor in Assassins—and such deep psychological and social insight in all of them.”
Classic Stage Company kicks off its 2019-2020 season with a revival of William Shakespeare's Macbeth, directed by John Doyle.
A terrifyingly prophetic tale of revenge, murder, and madness, Macbeth ominously traces the fallout when the darkest side of humanity cheats its way into a position of power. Often referred to as “The Scottish Play” by superstitious theatergoers due to the purported witchcraft found within its text, Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s bloodiest, scariest, and yet, most popular tragedies.
