Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun
1991
1991 Macbeth

Directed by Patrick Kelly

The witches and Eric Zivot *as MacBeth - 1991


Producer’s Perspective:

For our second season, since we had presented a comedy the year before, we selected one of Shakespeare’s most exciting tragedies: Macbeth. When the first Iraq war started, this choice – a play with some of Shakespeare’s great musings on warfare, death and bloody murder -- seemed even more relevant.

We hired Guest Director Patrick Kelly from Dallas who had just had a great success at the Magic Theatre directing Man of the Flesh, and who had an extensive background in classical theatre.

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth


Eric Zivot, then a Voice instructor and company member at the American Conservatory Theatre, was selected to play the bloody warrior. As his cohort in crime, we chose a young actress fresh from a training program at R.A.D.A. (England’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.) This young artist, Lise Bruneau, has now become one of the leading classical actresses of her generation. Lise was a sexy, passionate Lady Macbeth to Eric’s earnest, conscience-laden king. There was great chemistry onstage. We also welcomed our first child actor, Alexis Grausz, who played Macduff’s Son and an Apparition.
