The Folger Theatre's production of Macbeth will be extended one week due to advance sales, and will now run February 28-April 13. This production is co-conceived and co-directed by Teller (of Penn & Teller) and Aaron Posner.

This classic piece of Shakespeare follows the murderously ambitious and guilty Macbeth and Lady Macbeth in their quest for the throne. The cast features Ian Merrill Peakes (Macbeth), Kate Eastwood Norris (Lady Macbeth), Ben Cook (Young Macduff), Scott Kerns (Malcolm), Paul Morella (Banquo), Cody Nickell (Macduff), Dan Olmstead (Duncan), Karen Peakes (Lady Macduff), Benjamin Shiffbauer (Fleance), and Peter Vance (Donalbain). Eric Hissom, Andrew Zox, and Cleo House, Jr. will play the Weird Sisters, and the cast will also include Jeremy Brown, Evander Duck, Jr., Joe Isenberg, and Noel Vélez.

The creative team will include Dan Conway (set design), Karin Graybash (sound design), Devon Painter (costume design), and Thom Weaver (lighting design).
