Something wicked this way comes… when William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” opens at the Ritz Theatre Company, a historic New Jersey venue, on March 17.
For its first spring production, The Ritz will stage an immersive and riveting production of “Macbeth,” directed by five-time Barrymore award winner Mary Martello and featuring actors Steven R. Butler as Macbeth, Lisa VillaMil as Lady Macbeth, and AJ Klein as Macduff.
One of the most transcendent tragedies in the history of theater, “Macbeth” dramatizes the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power. A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth finds himself in a rapidly-rising ascent of murder and deceit.
“Macbeth” runs from March 17, 2023 to April 2, 2023. Tickets are $27.
