    Shakespeare in the Dark: Macbeth

    The Filigree Theatre presents the blood-drenched Scottish play as an immersive horror show performed entirely in the dark in the Driskill Hotel. If this works well, it'll be mostly due to the power of Shakespeare's words – as abetted, of course, by the company. If this works well, it'll be an intensely creepy and enjoyable experience. We're figuring yes.
