We celebrated the awards season and our Off-Broadway production of Shakespeare’s MAC BETH. The show has received a Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Best Revival and Drama Desk Award  nominations for Direction, Scenic Design and Revival of Play. We welcomed director Erica Schmidt, scenic designer Catherine Cornell, members of the cast Isabelle Fuhrman, Sophie Kelly-Hedrick, and Ismenia Mendes, as well as Brittany Bradford from the Hunter Theater Project's remount for a special livestreamed conversation. You can watch below the recoding here.

On an autumn afternoon, in an empty lot outside the city, seven girls meet up to do a play. School uniform tartan transforms in this American urban wasteland. The girls are witches, ghosts, and kings. They hurl headlong into the unchecked passions of Macbeth—in Shakespeare’s original textas the line between real life and blood fantasy quickly blurs. Through prophecies and smartphones, unexpected resonances emerge from Shakespeare’s dark nightmare of ambition gone awry. These young women discover what's done cannot be undone.

Featuring Sharlene Cruz, Isabelle Fuhrman, Sophie Kelly-Hedrick, Ismenia Mendes, Izabel Mar, AnnaSophia Robb, Lily Santiago, and Ayana Workman
