Macbeth 

click to enlarge stage_rev-1.jpg

The New Orleans Shakespeare Festival at Tulane's 2010 summer season included Macbeth staged as it might have been by a theater in New Orleans in the 1830s. The performance included a prelude with musket-toting citizens stalking the stage and attempting to sign up volunteers to support Texas in its resistance to Mexico. Once the more traditional plot started, a few voodoo accents inspired the play's infamous trio of weird sisters. The production is being remounted for area students and more than 5,200 will get a taste of one of the Bard's best-known tragedies. The Friday evening performance is open to the general public. Michael Aaron Santos, who played Macduff previously, has assumed the role of Macbeth, who together with Lady Macbeth (Ashley Nolan) intends to ascend the throne through murder. Tickets $20 general admission, $10 students/Tulane staff and faculty. — Will Coviello
