"Join us on a journey of exploration into the most Jacobean of all of Shakespeare's plays! With a phenomenal cast under Nathan Winkelstein's insightful direction, audiences are in for a special thrill with this dramatic examination of one of the most malevolently attractive plays of all time," said Red Bull Artistic Director Jesse Berger.

Director Nathan Winkelstein adds: "Macbeth has always held a special place in this Shakespeare lover's heart. A brilliantly constructed thriller with all the ingredients for a perfect show: murder, passion, vengeance, supernatural happenings, love and grief. It has it all. I am fascinated to explore the love and grief that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth share for each other and their lost child. I have become increasingly intrigued by the possibility that it is this dangerous brew - the double toil & trouble of grief and love, and their misplaced hope that a crown can bring happiness - that motivate two fundamentally decent humans to do horrid deeds. I am thrilled to use this workshop to explore these motivations further and find out what happens to the play with this focus."

This two performance in-person event will take place April 20th at 7:30pm and April 21st at 2:00pm at Sheen Center Shiner Theatre, 18 Bleecker Street. For tickets and more information, visit redbulltheater.com/macbeth.
