Lean & Hungry Theater and WAMU 88.5 present "MacBeth in the 21st Century," a one-hour adaptation of the original Shakespeare work which was named by the Washington City Paper as a Critic's Pick for the fall theater season.
WAMU 88.5 producer Karen Munson, in collaboration with Lean & Hungry Theater, has adapted the play to a one-hour presentation set in an alternate 21st-century Washington, D.C. Shakespeare's traditional language is incorporated, with contemporary style news reports and a narrator who breaks in periodically to recap the play's events.
Lean & Hungry co-founders Jessica Hansen and Alex Zavistovich star as the Macbeths, and Jessica Hansen adapted the script with Karen Munson.

Few writers and public intellectuals command an audience like one currently following Ta-Nehisi Coates. But long before Coates' thoughts shaped nationwide conversations about race, justice and the black experience in America, he found his voice as a young writer in local D.C. and in the city where he grew up, Baltimore.
