10/02 – The Tragedy of MACBETH
This week Play Clubbers! Tuesday, 10/02 at 7:00pm, please join us for a reading of the William Shakespeare classic “Macbeth”
The Tragedy of Macbeth (commonly called Macbeth) is a play written by William Shakespeare. It is considered one of his darkest and most powerful tragedies. Set in Scotland, the play dramatizes the corroding psychological and political effects produced when its protagonist, the Scottish lord Macbeth, chooses evil as the way to fulfill his ambition for power. He commits regicide to become king and then furthers his moral descent with a reign of murderous terror to stay in power, eventually plunging the country into civil war. In the end he loses everything that gives meaning and purpose to his life before losing his life itself.
Macbeth takes place Tuesday 10/02 at 7:00pm at J.E.T. Studios in the Hagen Studio at 5126 Lankershim Blvd in North Hollywood.
There is metered parking on Lankershim and Magnolia, and after 6:00pm, the meters are FREE. There is a parking structure across from J.E.T. that costs $8, as well as valet parking at numerous restaurants and bars on Magnolia for $5 (Brickyard Pub, Bow & Truss both do valet). You can also find free residential parking on most of the side streets in NoHo. We are also a few blocks down the street from the Metro Red Line (at Lankershim & Chandler).
