Studio 58’s 2014 Risky Nights production will take William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, and shake it up! Honoring the truth of the play, the actors seek out flaws, and quirks in the script and exploit them with the audience. Shakespeare’s text will be abandoned in moments of improvisation! Come, Lords and Ladies, let’s fill in the blanks! Follow us on Twitter at #RiskyMacbeth?
Now in its 14th season, the Risky Nights Series is designed as a bridge between classroom work and main stage productions.
