ABOUT THE SHOW
Experience the classic like never before in the Charles Hayden Planetarium!
Directed by Dr. Wendy Lippe, "MACBETH" is a fully reimagined immersive 3-D audiovisual experience.
Using full-spectrum binaural panning and featuring original full dome visuals created by the Museum’s own Planetarium team, we bring the story to life around the listener.
With its globally inspired soundscape, this production of "MACBETH" also celebrates the timelessness of diversity in its creation and performance.
Delve deeply into the psyches of "MACBETH" and Lady Macbeth as they navigate their internal struggle between fear and desire, preservation, and power.
After the performance, join Dr. Wendy Lippe, producing artistic director and clinical psychologist, for a conversation at the intersection of theater and mental health.
ABOUT THE PSYCH DRAMA COMPANY
The Psych Drama Company’s mission is to examine theatrical works through a psychological lens. We produce emotionally powerful, immersive, thought-provoking theater. With our world being as fast-paced and technology-driven as it is, the company seeks to hold space for the public to meaningfully reflect on their lives and relationships in new ways. Psych Drama’s unique integration of theater and psychology facilitates the creation of that space. “In particular, our approach to immersive theater activates strong feelings and physical reactions in audience members because they are no longer merely spectators. And the psychologists who lead post-show discussions are trained to hold space in ways that facilitate reflection and processing of those reactions; the result can be transformative. Immersive theater and psychology – a marriage that has the power to activate, hold, metabolize and transform." – Wendy Lippe , Ph.D., Producing Artistic Director
