Picard as Macbeth?! Beam me up!
Happy New Year, Sci-Fi/Lit Nerds (c'mon, I know I'm not the only one): the BAM in Brooklyn is presenting a modernized staging of Macbeth starring--drumroll--Patrick Stewart! I don't know about you guys, but for me this puts the "Ah!" in "theatAh!" Anyone want to sponsor some tickets? If I can get this warp drive back online, I think I can make it to Brooklyn in a few lightyears. Geordie?
It doesn't open until mid-February, but we suggest you get your seats for this Macbeth, coming over from England, now--when Patrick Stewart starred in the Tempest twelve years ago, tickets were swept up in a flash. Star Trek aside, this is a chance to see a world-class Shakespearean actor in one of the playwright's greatest roles. Expect twists: This is one of the darkest, most modern Macbeths you'll ever see, on a stark stage that combines a hospital and a slaughterhouse.
