Something Star Trek this way comes! It’s the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s massive production of Macbeth, starring the man most well known as Cap. Jean-Luc Picard, Mr. Patrick Stewart, who, as the New York Post’s Michael Riedel conjectures, may be on his way to a Tony. Follow the logic:
Mr. Riedel goes on to explain that come April, August Osage County will move from the Imperial to the Music Box, leaving the Imperial’s stage empty until late summer; hence, the potential for a limited engagement of Macbeth from late April through mid-June. The show, a highly stylized and gory interpretation that was met with rave reviews in London, closes at BAM on March 22.
What might Mr. Stewart think of becoming a Tony contender? Try asking him yourself—he’ll engage in a post-show dialogue at BAM this Sunday evening, an event that’s free for ticketholders.
