Radio Macbeth unfolds [in] a kind of theatrical alchemy.” – New York Times

SITI Company continues its finale New York season with the Radio Play tour, making its NYU Skirball debut with Radio Macbeth, inspired by Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre on the Air. Late at night in the guts of an abandoned theater, actors circle restlessly around the common shared warmth of a rehearsal table, moving through Shakespeare’s briefest and perhaps most magnetic play. Around them, in the perimeter of the space, the ghosts of all previous productions hover and encroach. The spirits of ambition, violence, fortune, free will, and madness flicker and glow. The actors cling to the sanity of words while the chaos of history grows to be undeniably present with them in the room. Featuring Akiko Aizawa, Will Bond, Gian-Murray Gianino, Ellen Lauren, Kelly Maurer, Barney O’Hanlon, and Stephen Duff Webber and Co-Directed by Anne Bogart and Darron L West.

“By God, SITI Company has got it. In the thrilling, breathlessly rapid Radio Macbeth, co-directors Anne Bogart and Darron L. West preside over something that feels thoroughly, effortlessly Elizabethan—despite the absence of both doublets and hose.” – TimeOut
