Macbeth in Stride
610 F Street NW Washington
Something wicked this way comes... Created by Obie Award-winning artist Whitney White, Macbeth In Stride uses one of the Bard's most iconic characters to examine just what it means to be an ambitious Black woman. Swathed in a mesmerizing tapestry of pop, rock, gospel, and R&B, the fatalistic arc of Lady Macbeth uplifts contemporary thoughts on Black female power, femininity, rage, and desire. This "spellbinding and strikingly original" (Edge Boston) production bubbles with energy, humor, and swagger, bringing Lady M's herstory into the 21st century.
