The darkly decadent last days of the Jazz Age provide the perfect backdrop for the "black and deep desires" of Macbeth in The Theatre Project's new production of Shakespeare's tragedy. Vaudeville and burlesque performers transport you back to the hidden excesses of the Prohibition era. There you will encounter a Macbeth as comfortable at a speakeasy as up on the heath. Enmeshed in a haunting and deadly conspiracy, he fights his own conscience and many of his closet friends in an underhanded battle for the crown. Egged on by an ambitious wife and influenced by a trio of witches, he learns that a throne achieved by murder can only be maintained by more bloodshed. Learn More

Overall it was a waste of time. Keep in mind this is as off-off Broadway as you can imagine. It is in the Players Theatre building, but not in the larger Players Theatre. Instead it is in the much smaller (50 seat) Steve & Marie Sgouros Theatre located on the 3rd floor of the building. Overall 4 amateur productions were presented, about 10-15 minutes each.
