Walterhoope, a new arts organization, in collaboration with Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center and In the Field will present THE MACBETHS, a reimagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth conceived by Walterhoope, served up with a meal sourced from local gardens.
The show will run for two nights only, Friday July 28 and Saturday July 29 at 7 PM at Baker Hunt, 620 Greenup Street, Covington, KY 41011. Single tickets, which include the meal, are now on sale for $12 at www.bakerhunt.org. The event is recommended for ages 12+.
How far would you go to get what you think you deserve? In Walterhoope’s THE MACBETHS, they explore Shakespeare’s classic tale of intrigue and ambition, prophecy and paranoia in the context of present-day America.
Directed by David Mavricos, starring Audrey Bertaux and William Vaughan, THE MACBETHS is Shakespeare braided into entirely new material: half Shakespeare, half Walterhoope. Celebrated Educational Chef Kristen St. Clair, owner of In the Field, will be creating a unique menu inspired by THE MACBETHS that will be served to the audience before the play begins. The play will also include original music by Kaleel Skeirik, composer and Professor of Music at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio.
“I want to create an environment where the audience can really connect with the artists involved,” says director David Mavricos. “What better way to do that than over a delicious, home-grown meal in Baker Hunt’s beautiful garden?”
