SOMETHING WICKED Set for FRIGID New York Festival, 2/20-3/8
Something Wicked, a new devised work utilizing the text of Shakespeare's Macbeth will play five performances at The Kraine Theater as part of the FRIGID New York Festival. Directed and adapted by Ana?s Koivisto, the evening features a cast that includes Sam Bruce, Kathryn Connors, Laura Epperson, Paul Gregg, Zachary Libresco, Lila Newman, Samuel Platizky, Ali Stoner, and Jay William Thomas.

"The Queen, my lord, is dead." Lady Macbeth awakes to a purgatory created from her own gruesome misdeeds. Unsure whether her final destination is Heaven or Hell, and guided by three gleefully tormenting witches, she searches for answers... and her lost love... in the mind-bending hereafter. Something Wicked rips open Shakespeare's classic text to find the beating heart of a new tale that pulses with dance, music, and dark humor, guaranteeing a haunting and lively evening for all who attend.
