"Beyond one shocking artistic liberty at the very end, Mac Beth is essentially just Macbeth, smartly shaved down to 90 minutes and seven actors. ...[Erica] Schmidt's smartly conceived production easily captures the wild DIY magic of the script in the hands of young performers." Read Zachary Stewart's full review of the previous production at Lucille Lortel Theatre here.


Stew

Toni Lachelle Pollitt, Portia, Kristin Dodson, and Nikkole Salter star in Stew, running through February 22 at Walkerspace.

"With humor and warmth, Stew challenges us to consider the life recipes that offer stability and comfort, and the ones that only taste like heartbreak." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
