Capturing Macbeth


A 120-minute televised theatrical performance, along with 50 minutes of behind-the-scenes documentary, during the final performances of a unique stage production of Macbeth, produced for the Folger Theater in Washington DC by Teller (the magician from Penn & Teller) and Aaron Posner of the acclaimed Two River Theater Company in New Jersey. Including cast interviews, backstage activities and a full multi-camera HD recording of the play itself, this special gives a close-up view of how Teller and Posner have imbued their production with the language of American horror films and the magic illusions for which Teller is famous. Leo Eaton directed for Caragol Wells Productions and the Folger Shakespeare Library (now on DVD release from Simon & Schuster).
