About Macbeth Cincinnati
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s production of Macbeth is set in Scotland between the years 1644 and 1645 with timeless elements of horror and supernatural when the witches are present. When the noble Scottish Lord Macbeth sees a path to power open up before him, he is determined to trod that path to its bloody end, consequences (and maybe himself) be damned. With his ruthless wife at his side, the two plot a Machiavellian course to put and to keep Macbeth on the Scottish throne. Shakespeare’s heart-pounding thrill ride of a play is a harrowing exploration of ambition, morality, tyranny and corruption.
The production is directed by Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s Associate Artist Miranda McGee and features a 21-person cast featuring Giles Davies as Macbeth, Kelly Mengelkoch as Lady Macbeth, Grant Niezgodski as Macduff, and Justin McCombs as Banquo. The creative team is made up of Justen Locke (Scenic and Lighting Designer), Douglas J. Borntrager (Sound and Video Designer), Cal Harris (Video Content Creator), Darnell Pierre Benjamin (Movement Coach), and Rainy Edwards (Costume Designer). They are joined by Fight Choreographer, Gina Cerimele-Mechley.
