Ty Jones
Ty Jones will play the title role in Epic Theatre Ensemble's Macbeth, to be presented at the 47th Street Theatre, April 20-May 26, with an opening on April 29. Ron Russell will direct.

Epic's production is presented as part of Shakespeare for a New Generation, a national program of the National Endowment for the Arts in cooperation with Arts Midwest.

The cast will also feature Melissa Friedman as Lady Macbeth, and include a special appearance by Richard Easton. The cast will also include Devin E. Haqq, Rhett Henckel, Aimé Donna Kelly, Scott Kerns, Lori E. Parquet, Julian Rozzell, Jr., Godfrey L. Simmons, Jr., and James Wallert.

The design team is comprised of Mikiko Suzuki MacAdams (set), Alixandra Gage Englund (costumes), Cat Tate Starmer (lighting), and Ron Russell (sound).

Every performance of Macbeth will be immediately followed by a post performance forum lead by scholars, authors, and thinkers connected to the content of the show, which will also include members of the cast.
