Macbeth In Stride also stars Kira Helper and Reggie D. White.

BroadwayWorld has a first look at American Repertory Theater at Harvard University's MACBETH IN STRIDE. Created by Obie Award winner Whitney White and directed by Tyler Dobrowsky and Taibi Magar, the production is now on stage at the Loeb Drama Center in Harvard Square.

Tickets from $25 to the 80-minute Macbeth In Stride are currently on sale at AmericanRepertoryTheater.org/MacbethInStride. See below for a full performance schedule and additional ticketing information.

A dazzling theatrical event created by Obie Award-winning artist Whitney White and performed by White and an ensemble with a live band, Macbeth In Stride examines what it means to be an ambitious Black woman through the lens of one of Shakespeare's most iconic characters. The first of White's five-part series commissioned by A.R.T. excavating the women from Shakespeare's canon, the production uses pop, rock, gospel, and R&B to trace the fatalistic arc of Lady Macbeth while lifting up contemporary Black female power, femininity, and desire. Directors Tyler Dobrowsky and Taibi Magar (We Live in Cairo) co-stage this groundbreaking world premiere with choreography by Raja Feather Kelly.

Tickets from $25 are available at AmericanRepertoryTheater.org/MacbethInStride. Discounts are available to students and ticket-buyers under age 25, Blue Star families, EBT card holders, seniors, Harvard faculty and staff, and others. More information at AmericanRepertoryTheater.org/PlanYourVisit.
