About the Company: The Russian Arts Theater and Studio
Currently, our mission is two-fold. Firstly, through the exploration of new theatrical works as well as progressive re-imaginings of classics, we aim to preserve, promote and advance Russian arts and heritage in New York City. Secondly, through an affordable and accessible theater education program, we aim to train a new generation of imaginative, innovative, and sincere artists capable of serving the mission for generations to come.
Inspired by the African concept of ubuntu, this new play explores the ways in which our lives are inextricably linked across cultures, continents, language, and time.
About the Company: Theatre 167
Born in a community where 167 different languages are spoken, Theatre 167 creates, cultivates, and supports new work by artists of wide-ranging backgrounds, traditions, and beliefs. Our process is deeply collaborative, and we are particularly interested in investigating intersections, boundaries and borders—both cultural and artistic—and exploring how the telling of our individual and collective stories inspires us to appreciate a multiplicity of voices. We bring our community together to share innovative, generous and entertaining theatrical events—events that deepen and enhance our understanding of one another and of the role of theater in our civic dialogue.
About the Company: Frog and Peach
THE FROG AND PEACH THEATRE CO. is committed to dispelling the “rocket science” myth of Shakespeare by bringing wildly entertaining productions of Shakespeare’s plays to the people of New York. We don’t dumb down the texts or engage in stunt period stuff (Wild West Winter’s Tale? Not here.) —we painstakingly craft the scripts to appeal to Shakespeare fans and Gen-Y alike. If you’ve ever walked the Upper West Side, you’ll know—it’s become astonishingly bifurcated in terms of income and level of education. As former “troubled kids” themselves, the co-founders strive to engender a love of theatre in those who may not otherwise get an opportunity to see a live show, and to whet young appetites for the classics. 20% of all tickets are FREE to at-risk kids, their families, and the elderly.
Macbeth has won King Duncan's war; all should be well-- but for the gorgeous, seductive witches (AMY FRANCES QUINT, HANNAH OWENS, & LINDSAY TANNER) who haunt the moor, tempting Macbeth to horrible acts with promises of power, and into the heart of darkness.
Featuring critically acclaimed MOTI MARGOLIN & KAITLIN LARGE as the murderous Macbeth & his lovely, lethal Lady, MACBETH is a chilling ride you won't soon forget.
An audience favorite, The Frog & Peach Theatre Company's MACBETH brings all the heart-stopping thrills and excitement our fans have come to expect.
MACBETH is a perfect introduction to Shakespeare for young and old alike.
MACBETH CONTAINS BRIEF NUDITY AND PORTRAYS ACTS OF EXTREME VIOLENCE.
