Ticket-buyers will receive access to the audio performance, along with special instructions, a cocktail recipe, and accoutrements that help complete the experience.
Recorded in isolation over twenty-four hours, Macbeth: A Surround Sound Experiment will feature Tamara Tunie (“Better Call Saul”), Laila Robins (“The Boys”), Derek Wilson (“Future Man”), Joel de la Fuente (“The Man in High Castle’), Robert Cuccioli (“The Sinner”), Geoffrey Owens (The Haves and the Have Nots), Jacob Cogman, Sean Hudock, Rocío Mendez, Tim Nicolai, Mandy Olsen, Shane Taylor, Patrick Toon, and Jeorge Bennett Watson.
