CANCELED: The Tragedy of Macbeth

Tuesday Jan 25, 2022 7:30 PM
This program has been canceled.

Director Joel Coen collaborates with Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand for a textually faithful adaptation of the Shakespeare classic that snaps to life on screen in stark black and white. Washington cements his status as one of America’s greatest living artists with a commanding performance as the man who would be king, and Coen, directing solo for the first time, utilizes set and sound design to create a uniquely cinematic interpretation.
