Classic Perspectives for Macbeth
Women of Shakespeare
Sunday, November 3, after the 2pm performance
Using the characters in Macbeth as a launching point, this post-show talk between directors John Doyle and Phyllida Lloyd (known for directing the all female Shakespeare Trilogy: The Tempest, Julius Caesar, and Henry IV) will explore the power of women in Shakespeare. They’ll uncover how female roles in classic works relate to feminism, politics, and women’s issues today.
Saturday, November 9 after the 2pm performance
Take in a special post-matinee chat with scholars, Sybille Bruun-Moss (Shakespeare Forum), Stephen Burdman (NY Classical Theatre), Lauren Robertson (Columbia), and Daniel Spectro (NYU). This panel will take an in-depth look at the dramaturgical and production history of the play.
Superstition and Shakespeare
Thursday, December 5 after the 7pm performance
Is “The Scottish Play” truly cursed? Why do some people refuse to say Macbeth in a theater? Are the witches in the play chanting actual spells? Join us after the play as we attempt to answer these questions and discuss theatrical superstitions and the supernatural legacy of this great work.
Classic Perspectives for Dracula and Frankenstein
Women and Dracula
Wednesday, February 26 after the 7pm performance
Many female characters in Victorian-era literature were not given much agency by their male authors. In her adaptation of Dracula, Kate Hamill tackles this very issue. Join us as we discuss her take and the importance of the women’s roles in this ever-popular horror tale.
