The M word

Hot off the Associated Press. Not very informative, but a bit more colourful than earlier press-release regurgitations reports.

Ssssh! The Scottish play will be on view this summer in Central Park.

"Macbeth" -- the Shakespeare tragedy no one mentions by name in a theater because of bad luck -- will star Liev Schreiber as the murderous title character and Jennifer Ehle as his equally bloodthirsty wife.

The free Public Theater production, to be directed by Moises Kaufman, will begin performances June 13 at the Delacorte Theater and run through July 9. An official opening night will be announced later.

Both Schreiber and Ehle are Tony winners -- Schreiber for his performance in the 2005 revival of David Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross" and Ehle for her work in the 2000 revival of Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing."
