Photo Flash: First Look - The Players Theatre's MACBETH, Opening 9/5
The new musical, MACBETH, will open at The Players Theatre on September 5, 2014 for its strictly limited Off-Broadway premiere. Below, check out a first look at the show's stars, Tyler Nye and Dominic Sellers, in just-released publicity images!
Macbeth will be directed by Christian Amato (Barbicide, Bitch) and choreographed by Emily Maddan, with original music by Eric Fletcher. Inspired by William Shakespeare's play, MACBETH brings this classic tale Off-Broadway full of the frenetic energy and fatalistic attitude of the prohibition era.
MACBETH transforms the timeless story ambition, conspiracy and betrayal into a new musical of romance, eroticism and decadence that amplifies a bloodthirsty cycle of corruption.
