Traditionally inferior to their British brethren in the presentation of Shakespeare, how can American actors approach the grandeur of the Bard? Easy: by removing the all of that difficult, unnecessary language. The latest installment of Piper McKenzie's Bizarre Science Fantasy physical-theatre series, Macbeth Without Words presumes to improve upon the classic story about the original social climbers with an all-movement version inspired by silent film, modern dance and comic books - with extra emphasis on the gore, the ghosts, and the supernatural. "Self-explanatory!" raves The New York Times.
Macbeth Without Words is presented as part of The Pretentious Festival.
