MacBeth by William Shakespeare (theatre) June 1-10 (multiple shows)

$12 advance | $15 door

Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s shortest yet most powerful and beloved tragedies. The Scottish king and his murderous queen are two of the most memorable characters in all of Shakespeare’s works. The characters and events are intense and bloody, driven by greed, ambition and the influences of the supernatural. Macbeth remains relevant even after 400 years, as it delves into our most archetypical, primal conflicts: the dance between good and evil, fate and choice, madness and sanity.  In these characters, we are shown the dark sides of our own psychology and desires and are left to question how far we would each go to obtain ultimate power.

Anais Mitchell (modern folk)

$22 advance | $25 door

Anais Mitchell is a singer-songwriter and musician who has been heavily influenced by the confessional alternative folk stylings of Ani DiFranco. Anaïs Mitchell began writing songs when she was 17 and has been described as the "queen of modern folk music." Her album entitled Hadestown featured appearances from Greg Brown, DiFranco and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon.  And it might come as a surprise when, over the course of eleven songs, she seems to be channeling spirits from the Old Testament to modern America — but mostly, well, from the Y chromosome.
