Inspired by George W. Bush's first presidential term circa 2002, and an examination of our current culture, this fresh, modern take on Macbeth makes for a production that Shakespeare rookies and veterans alike can enjoy. In this classic, a violent cycle of corruption and betrayal is set in motion when the popular King Duncan is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend. Ross, a nobleman in the king's court, has been close to Macbeth but begins to question his true nature. Meanwhile, Macbeth -- with his ambitious wife by his side -- achieves the power he believes he deserves, but the price is tragically high. Shakespeare's masterpiece provides a glimpse into the human heart, with the "black and deep desires" found in even the best men and women and asks the question: "What would you be willing to do to achieve your dreams?"

I thought that the production was great. The opening scene was like WOO! I most def recommend seeing this. It was a real deal getting the tix at such a good price, though I felt bad that I hadn't payed the full price. I'll be back. Thanks Goldstar, you rock.
Sweet Confinement delves into the dark side of our humanity under the pressure of tragedy; turning a spotlight onto the complex relationships that we experience as family, friends, and lovers. When you are forced to question your choices, can you live with them? SiNNERMAN, known for their strong ensemble acting, raises the stakes with their second production.
About the Ticket Supplier: SiNNERMAN Ensemble, Inc
SiNNERMAN is an ensemble of 10 artists who support and challenge each other. Working with a sense of play, a love for the collaborative process, and a belief in the power and importance of community, they create compelling and evocative theatre. Their inaugural production was “The Incredibly Famous Willy Rivers” in 2007, and critics wrote “there is no question about their acting skills.” And “impressive.” Ambitious graduates of the School at Steppenwolf, the members have worked at such Chicago theatres as Steppenwolf, Lookingglass, Court, The House, Collaboraction, Remy Bumppo, Chicago Dramatists, Uma Productions, Pinebox, The Gift, Second City, and numerous others. At Steppenwolf, the group did an exercise to the Nina Simone song “Sinnerman”. Inspired by the singer’s music, passion and strength, and by the beautiful moment that they shared, they found their name.
