Experience Shakespeare's Macbeth reimagined in the contemporary world of a Mexican drug cartel. This extraordinary one-man puppet show is performed in both English and Spanish by veteran actor and puppeteer Kalob Martinez. Originally created as an MFA production at the University of Connecticut, the show combines an astonishing array of traditional and contemporary puppetry styles, from 3D printed characters and projection art to Taiwanese-inspired Bu Dai Xi fight choreography. A fantastic way to celebrate Shakespeare's birthday week! 

Recommended for adults and teens.
