“They think me Macbeth, ambition is my folly. I’m a polymath, a pain in the..”

Okay, okay, okay.

You’re tired of the Hamilton references? I’ll “Take A Break.” (That was the last one) Speaking of Macbeth, The Classical Theatre of Harlem presents a free and family friendly production of Macbeth.

Now I love a Shakespeare play, but maybe that’s not how you envisioned spending one of your evenings this summer. I get it, I get it.

But here’s a couple reasons why you should check it out!

  1. This production is for us and by us. The Classical Theatre of Harlem has always been a theatre for the people. This production is reimagined and framed in Ethiopia during the time of Haile Selassie. Come on Africa!
  2. It’s outdoors. What’s more fitting for summer than outdoor theatre? Make sure you get to the park early. The seating in the amphitheater fills up quickly!
  3. It’s free. Free? FREE!? If it’s free, it’s for me, honey. You don’t have to say anything else!
  4. Pre-show fun. During the run of the production, CTH will feature one pre-show performance by students of CTH’s educational program, Project Classics, in collaboration with The Dream Center. CTH’s Uptown Shakespeare in the Park continues to be presented in association with City Parks Foundation’s SummerStage festival.

I’m sold.

CTH’s Producing Artistic Director, Ty Jones, and Roslyn Ruff star as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.

Looks like we’re heading Uptown. We’ll see you there!

Where: Marcus Garvey Park, Richard Rodgers Amphitheater

When: July 8-31. Tuesday-Sunday 8:00pm, Fridays 8:30pm
