11/2/11: Lady Macbeth

11-2_lady_macbeth.jpg
Michelle Peterson and Jason Tatom in Aden Ross' "Lady Macbeth"

Veteran Utah playwright Aden Ross says she confers with William Shakespeare every day. When she's trying to make sense of something - artistically or politically - she says she turns to the Bard for answers. Her latest play is a look at modern politics, so it's fitting that she inhabits the stage with her own version of his characters - among them Lady Macbeth, Iago, Portia and the Fool. Wednesday, Aden Ross and others join us to talk about what Shakespeare can still teach us about our world.

  • Plan B Theatre Company's Lady Macbeth runs through November 6 at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City. For tickets and information, click here or call 801-355-ARTS.
