The Berkeley Rep has taken on one of Shakespeare's many epics; this time it's Macbeth. Performances began February 19th and run through April 10th. Holding the audience will be none other than Frances McDormand and Conleth Hill, better known as Lord Varys from Game of Thrones. These two are no strangers to live acting and the direction is lead by Daniel Sullivan, whom the NY Times hails as the, "go-to guy for Shakespeare." The ensemble is a collection of extremely talented stage actors from the Bay Area and elsewhere.
Beyond the exceptional cast and award winning direction, expect an other worldly stage design and topnotch costumes intermixed with effects and lighting. Anticipate a running time of two hours and 30 minutes in addition to the intermission. Tickets range in price from $45-$145. This will be an experience you won't want to miss. See you at the show!
