Free Screening of Folger Theatre's MACBETH Held Tonight at Carter Barron Ampitheater

A free screening of Folger Theatre's 2008 magical production of Macbeth will take place tonight, August 23 at 8:15pm at the Carter Barron Amphitheatre in Rock Creek Park. Directed by Teller (of Penn & Teller) and Aaron Posner and recorded before a rapt audience in the Folger's intimate Elizabethan Theatre, this "supernatural horror thriller" showcases the inventive magic of Teller and provides new insight into Shakespeare's classic tragedy. No tickets are required. Gates will open at 7:00pm and the screening will begin at dusk (apx. 8:15pm).

The New York Times called the production "a knockout" and The Wall Street Journal said, "This riveting Macbeth ought to be seen by as many people as possible." The production starred Ian Merrill Peakes in the title role, along with Kate Eastwood Norris as Lady Macbeth, Cody Nickell as Macbeth's foe Macduff, and Paul Morella as loyal Banquo. The original production was co-produced with Two River Theatre Company.
