Directed by Teller (of Penn & Teller) and Aaron Posner and recorded before a rapt audience in the Folger’s intimate Elizabethan Theatre, this “supernatural horror thriller” showcases the inventive magic of Teller and provides new insight into Shakespeare’s classic tragedy.
The New York Times called the production “a knockout” and The Wall Street Journal said, “This riveting Macbeth ought to be seen by as many people as possible.” The production starred Ian Merrill Peakes in the title role, along with Kate Eastwood Norris as Lady Macbeth, Cody Nickell as Macbeth’s foe Macduff, and Paul Morella as loyal Banquo.
The original production was co-produced with Two River Theater Company.
