Polish theatre TR Warszawa is staging Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” in Dumbo this week. It almost seemed like the director, Grzegorz Jarzyna, and his crew were under some sort of a curse – for the last week they were building stage in the old Tobacco Warehouse at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park, with constant rain breaks, but they have finally built it and it’s ready. The play is staged outside and there’s no plan B, so even the dress rehearsal last night was highly iffy. But luckily, the weather cooperated, even if only for a few hours, and we’re happy to say that the rehearsal took place and… looked great:
We can’t wait to see the play, showing every night from tonight until June 29th. It’s a modern take on the old classic, very creative and contemporary, with lots of light, fireworks and sounds of military choppers. Sounds exciting, right? All the tickets are sold out (except the closing night), but we’ve been told that you can try right before the performance, maybe you’ll get lucky. We’re also keeping our fingers crossed so none of the performances would be rained out.
