Trying too see all the Shakespeare plays but will not count this for MacBeth. I have read the play but it was still very hard to follow. Very bizarre. Should have left... continued

Description

The Federal Theatre Project’s production of Voodoo Macbeth in 1936 is legendary for its cast of African-American actors. A marginalized group heretofore seen in primarily dancing and singing roles, the play challenged audiences to acknowledge and appreciate their clear talent and ability. Set in Haiti, Shakespeare’s themes of witchcraft and the occult were replaced by the island’s practices of voodoo.

TACT Artistic Director Jack Marshall sought in Director Kathleen Akerley an artist who most embodies Welles’ fearless pursuit of dynamic theater, with his willingness to break rules and expectations to keep the stage what it was meant to be: vivid, challenging, and controversial.
