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

Had a great time on the tour! The tour guide was friendly and knowlegeable. Loved our snack stops along the way. The meat pies at Myers of Keswick were delicious, as were the cookies at Insomnia Cookies. I would definitely recommend this tour for locals and tourists.

The tour starts off where the Oreo cookie was born, then heads up to the High Line to admire the views and explore the west side’s glory days as the city’s largest industrial area. It then enters Greenwich Village to explore its side streets, stoops, squares and sordid tales of riots, murder, abuse, artistry and spite. _
You’ll explore following areas:
- West Chelsea
- Meatpacking District
- West Village
- Greenwich Village
Each participant will be offered a complimentary bottle of water and two complimentary snacks. (Snacks are not vegan-friendly, but vegetarian alternatives are available.)
The tour covers two miles in a little over 3 hours. Wear comfortable footwear and dress appropriately for the weather, as the tours go on rain or shine.
Bring a camera.
Guide gratuities are not included in the tour price. While not mandatory, they are always appreciated.
The tour ends near Washington Square Park in the heart of Greenwich Village. _
