Something Wicked this May Comes to North East, MD, with the first ever production of Shakespeare's MACBETH in Cecil County. Albert Einstein once said that while he didn't know what weapons World War III would be fought with, World War IV would be fought with sticks and stones. Our play begins after the cataclysmic end to humanity's dominance over the world, as the warlords (Thanes) jockey for power and influence in the ruins of civilization. The greatest of these, Macbeth, is led by ambition, his wife, some witches, and a spectral dagger to take the kingship by any means necessary... no matter how many friends and allies he has to slaughter along the way.

An exhilarating and raucous look at one of our nation's founding rock stars, reinventing the life of our seventh president.
Andrew Jackson kicked British butt, shafted the Indians and smacked down the Spaniards, all in the name of these United States – who cares if he didn't have permission? Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson creators, Michael Friedman (Love's Labour's Lost, The Fortress of Solitude) and Alex Timbers (Love's Labour's Lost, Peter and the Starcatcher), cook up an alternate universe (and draw parallels to today's political/populist landscape) with their musical about the seventh U.S. president.
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson follows America's seventh president from his early days as a child on the wild frontier to his controversial reign in the White House. With the country divided into rich and poor (and with continued skirmishes with the Native Americans upsetting pieces of the new world), Jackson begins his steady climb from military strategist to populist rabble-rouser to President of the United States. Along the way, he meets his wife, Rachel, takes on the Founding Fathers – and rocks like no political figure has ever rocked before, with the help of an onstage trio and an entourage of singing, joking cohorts. It also asks the question: is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he's really, really hot?
